Born in Seoul, South Korea, Lucas was adopted by a loving family in Colorado. He grew up making art from an early age in Boulder. Having Cerebral Palsy Left Hemiplegia, he does not let it stop him from creating. He has always loved drawing, especially because of his love of cars. He graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Art Education. In 2015, he expanded his art mediums to acrylic painting on canvas. Lucas enjoys painting landscapes, cityscapes, animals, and portraits.
Being able to sit down at my easel and listen to music while I pour my emotions, hopes, and memories on canvas using my paint brush is an amazing feeling. Many of the locations in my paintings are places that I wish to visit and those with special personal meaning. Emotion and movement are important to my work. Most of my landscapes and cityscapes show people going about their days, rain or shine.
My paintings have been inspired by modern, everyday life: both busy cities and quiet natural settings. Taking a snapshot of night out on the town or out in the country, my paintings will hopefully immerse the viewer into these scenes.
Lucas is a member of NoBo Arts District.
And, those who understand/know the meaning behind my company name, know the meaning of "crayonbreaking" and where it is from. Do you? I get the question from many people about my art being created in crayon. But, obviously they are acrylic paint on canvas.
Lucas has sold artwork to many individuals and companies around the world. He has also sold prints and originals to companies through ArtLifting. Most of these have new homes. Some are available as prints or original canvas paintings through ArtLifting.
Through ArtLifting, Lucas was commissioned to create a series of paintings for Merck, a company dedicated to bringing forward medicines and vaccines for many of the world’s most challenging diseases. These paintings were inspired by Merck's history, culture, and values. He began working on this project in late March 2020 and completed it in October. He is very proud of what he created for Merck's employees to enjoy and be inspired by. This project was a great experience, and he enjoyed delving into Merck’s accomplishments. Lucas was so honored to be asked to do this project for a company that’s so dedicated to helping patients.
