Zamoc, the jester

by davidelp 16 October 2012

Luca Zamoc was born in the mid eighties and learned the first drawing notions from comic books, the bible and anatomy books. He later on moves to Milano to take an art direction and graphic design course at Nuova Accademia dell’Arte art academy. He draws on any media, from walls to paper to digital illustrations. He recently left again left his gray hometown, the city of Modena, moving subsequently to Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London, Venice and now Istanbul.

May he have changed since we last saw him? Judging from the clothes he designed for the bastard collection, he is still his same old self, but like a good wine, his art just gets better with age.

Death is the only big theme in my work.

I’m not good at describing life, i don’t know how to use colors, i can’t draw people (women in particular) and i can’t tell anything pleasant. If you visit my tumblr it’s all guts, monsters and assassins.

Here is the exclusive Interview with the Death.

Too old to skate everyday?

Last night i witnessed an exeptional reunion of the old school scene: Billy Runaway came for a visit, he was a pro skater for Madrid in the 80s and a potojournalist for Thrasher in those years. The welcome team was so composed: Max Bonassi, Alex Colombi, Claudio “Jep” Bernardini and Andrea Paulicelli. These old folks hadn’t seen each other in 21 years, surprise! Alex had first met Billy in Milan back in ’85, and soon introduced him to Bonassi who was craving for a consulence for building a vert ramp in Monza.

To celebrate, we sat at the fish restaurant right next door and popped some corks… After a 3 hours food fest we went up to the bastard bowl, but we suffered from the digestion along with the wine effects and a few more years on our shoulders… Too old to skate? Maybe not, infact Jep and Bonassi did represent with their skating as much as they could, but maybe i’m “too old to take action photos everyday”, eheh! So i decided to only post their mugshots, and since i started skating in the 80s, those are the faces that inspired me to join the four wheels and a board world… All the best to Billy and his young company skate company, and I thank him for a little industry talk, that done with the right people is never boring! See you next time, hoping it doesn’t take another 21 years!
