Ammun Luca

Ammun Luca

Ammun Luca's artistic practice provides us with a link to the ancient past. His portrait sculpture remains unparalleled within Australia for its strength, beauty and gravitas, as well as for his commitment to the tradition of working from life. He has sculpted such Australian icons as composer Peter Sculthorpe, Sir Donald Bradman, Don Dunstan, journalist Des Colquhoun, Margaret Olley and poet A D Hope.

Rejecting the accepted paths of commercial artist or academic, Ammun Luca is a true renaissance-man living amongst us in modern-day Australia. Sculptor and musician (he is a passionate Renaissance lutenist), he has recently moved from his birthplace of Adelaide to live close to nature amongst the rainforests and mountains of Northern NSW, devoting himself daily to his work.
