Lucio Bubacco was born on the island of Murano in 1957. At fifteen, he received his artisan’s license and began marketing Venetian lampwork collectibles. In 1980, he began studying anatomical drawing with the Venetian artist Alessandro Rossi and figures in movement became a central theme of his work, transcending traditional application of lampworking. His work has been selected for numerous solo exhibitions around the world including Habatat Galleries in Chicago, IL; Museo del Vidrio in Monterrey, Mexico; Hakone Venetian Glass Art Museum in Otaru, Japan; and Muriel Karasik Gallery in New York. Collections including his work can be found at the Museum of Art and Design, New York; Museo del Vetro in Italy; Musée Atelier du Verre in France; and Glasmuseum Frauenauand in Germany, among others.
