Nadia Luongo was born in 1986 and lives in Naples. She has got her Diploma at the Liceo A. Genovesi, specializing in classical studies, then she has graduated in Biomedical Engineering at University of Naples Federico II.
Her interest and curiosity in art in all its forms induced her, despite her studies fields, to cultivate her passion for drawing during her spare time, making portraits even on commission, attending art exhibitions with her works and performing extemporary painting.

Nadia Luongo dedicates herself primarily to drawing, in particular to portraits in realistic style, mostly made with pencil or sanguine.
Her desire to experiment new techniques induces this artist to make some artworks using trash: bottle caps, buttons, beads, secondhand toys, recording tapes, pieces of clothes, newspapers and so on. That's a way to give new life to things that would normally be thrown away.
In addition to the trash art, in recent years she's approached the food art, carving fruits and vegetables and creating artistic compositions with food and drinks.
