Lucks

Australia

He calls himself Lucks, and that’s the theme he weaves through his art – luck, its symbolism, its indiscriminate randomness.This Brisbane artist channels his observations of a life hard-lived into experiences on the canvas.

A former Catholic who still leans on the inculcation of faith and its symbols to influence his acrylic and oil media: a brightly spray-painted silhouette of the Virgin Mary, also representing the voodoo Goddess of Good Fortune, juxtaposes two religions that are in conflict yet share the same message of hope through the strong female archetype. Typical Lucks.

For more than 30 years Lucks has employed the spray can to hiss and spit his visual stories into life, first as a street artist and now onto canvas.
