Lucas Garcia currently lives and works in London. He grew up in Stroud in the south west of England. In 2008 he moved to Spain where he studied illustration at ESDIP. While there, he became more interested in the traditional techniques of drawing and painting. After graduating, he moved to London to study at the London Atelier of Representational Art (LARA). He has worked on illustration and portrait commissions in both countries and regularly exhibits in London. He recently won a Highly Commended prize at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition.
When drawing or painting, he is more interested in understanding the structure and language of visual phenomena than putting across a particular concept or ideal. He leaves space for less explicit meanings and themes to form naturally in his work.
