Miguel Luciano uses painting to explore lyrical abstractions and involve the community through public artworks. In 2009, he exhibited A Place After I Die, a sculpture that invited the public to write their sins or traumatic experience on its surface in an effort to rid them of the experience through a cathartic act.
Miguel Luciano was born in the Dominican Republic in 1968 and has worked in New York City since 1994. Luciano attended the National School of Fine Arts and Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo (UASD) from 1987-1990, and in 1990, was granted a Peace Corps scholarship to pursue studies in Fine Arts and Illustration at Altos de Chavón in the Dominican Republic. Later, Luciano received the Bludhorn Scholarship to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration at the Parsons School of Design in New York City.
Since 1994, his work has been shown in multiple group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. Luciano has participated in the National Biennial at the Museum of Modern Art and the 5th Drawing Biennial organized by the Arawak Foundation at the Drawing Museum in Santo Domingo. He has exhibited at the Essex Art Center, Massachusetts, Oxiel Latin American Art and Fractal Lab in New Jersey.
