Initially recognisable motifs borrowed from nostalgic, pop-culture characters of yesteryear are rendered abstract through Lucas Geor’s crucial brushstrokes and seemingly arbitrary use of colour.
Recounting the bold lines of the 'wild style', NYC subway graffiti artists, the abstracted perspectives of Master Cubists like Picasso, and influenced by disparate artistic mediums - a century of the avant-garde, vintage signwriting, advertising, animation - Lucas’ painting synthesises fine details and his tongue-in-cheek humour through an assured, lyrical spontaneity.
Lucas' work shirks convention and creates a subtle commentary about the environment around him, while the identifiable figures establish a dialogue that requires we join in on his vivid, and vital, conversation.
