Edson Luli was born in Scutari (Albania) in 1989.
He received his bachelor’s degree in New Art Technologies in 2013 and completed his master’s degree in Cinema and Video in 2019 at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, the city where he lives and works.
Edson Luli’s artistic practice encompasses diverse media ranging from print and photography, to film installations and new media. His work is a continuous exploration of the existence of being and its relationship with the environment. The way we behave in the spaces of everyday life can be considered as the essence of our presence in the world. By offering the public a type of participatory observation, the artist proposes, through his practice, to explore what is happening when we are engaged in the activity of thinking. Luli’s research is found in this temporal space where perceptions, abstractions, behaviors and mental models are generated.
