Lucas Geor is an Australian painter (b.1988, Sydney, Australia), currently based in Melbourne, whose work intertwines traditional painting practices with the bold aesthetic of cartoons, creating a juxtaposition between fine art and popular illustration.

Using acrylic and aerosol paint, Geor paints snapshots in time, informed by animation from the 20th century, looking at the world through a simplified lens and investigating and exaggerating intricate and oft-overlooked details of a scene. Choosing to focus on the layers of their animated environments, rather than the characters themselves, Geor aims to explore how small details and backgrounds of a painting can catalyse its narrative and set a specific mood. The outcome of Geors work becomes layered paintings, featuring empty rooms and landscapes, littered with the stains of human touch, hinting at the feeling that a space has just been inhabited or is anticipating a new presence.

Geor draws inspiration from a variety of artistic movements and genres—from the intricacies of Japanese woodblock prints, to the bold aesthetics of Keith Harings engaging pop works as well as the details in the cartoon landscapes of animations such as Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry and The Simpsons.

Geor holds a Bachelor of Fine Art, received from the University of NSW in 2015 and boasts sell out shows in Australia, and exhibits his work globally throughout the United States and Asia.
