Alex Lukas was born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in nearby Cambridge. With a wide range of artistic influences, Lukas creates both highly detailed drawings and intricate ‘zines. Lukas’ delicately rendered landscapes on paper capture a kind of magical, high-velocity serenity of a compelling image seen from a moving train.
Alex’s drawings and paintings often feature desolate places with pieces from the past. These remnants—such as a deteriorating wall with a name spray-painted on it or a discarded tire that an unruly tree has grown through—are hints of habitation, which connect the past with the viewer’s present experience.
