Since 2002 his works have been shown in Italian and foreign galleries. To his credit are collective, personal, private and museum exhibitions and participation in art fairs. His canvases are present in various catalogs including the monograph 30 Tele published by Cairo Mondadori and the volume Forte dei Marmi published by Allemandi. The first recounts his first 10 years of artistic activity, presenting his path from street artist to collaborations with galleries; the second introduces the viewer to the artist's first research into Italian seascapes and landscapes. His figurative painting has multiple subjects: portraits, urban views and natural landscape scenarios. Today, after dedicating himself mainly to foreign collaborations in recent years, Christopher has returned to focus on the national territory, proposing exhibitions and socio cultural events, in order to raise awareness and promote a multicultural reality.

The Beaches Series

The beaches of Luigi Christopher Veggetti Kanku represent a pictorial exploration that goes beyond the mere representation of the subject itself.
