Lucas is a self-taught visual artist who works in various mediums. His preferred methods are pen and ink illustrations but he also enjoys painting in acrylics and mixed media. He enjoys creating bizarre characters and delving into the darker realm of his psyche to get the inspiration for most of his work and doesn’t believe that visual art should be structured in any way but rather, should be a free flow of ideas and uses of materials that are not subject to rules. His work ranges from realism to abstract.
Lucas also thoroughly enjoys drawing and painting portraits of people that peak his interest, typically mainstream and pop culture entertainers and personalities.
He is currently working on creating characters and a story line for an alternative children’s book that will also be suitable for adults.
Lucas’ earliest artistic influence was Mort Drucker who was mostly known for his work as a caricature artist for Mad Magazine over a span of many decades. He used Drucker’s work as his teacher and his line work is deeply influenced by Drucker’s style. Other artists that inspire Lucas are Tim Burton, Ralph Steadman, H.R. Geiger and Jean Michel Basquiat.
All pieces here are for sale and he also accepts commissions.
