Artist Biography

Graduating in advertising, Lucas Lamenha has been working as a creative for over 15 years. He has received significant national and international awards throughout his career. His experience as Creative Director in advertising led Lucas Lamenha to explore and discover himself as an artist. Lucas uses graphic elements and characters that reflect the modern world’s chaotic surplus of information and work together to convey a larger story.

He draws the viewer in repeatedly and provokes the public by using storytelling as a key element in his thematic, transformative way of converting memories into stories told with spray, acrylic, and marker – Stories about a ludic, original and colourful universe of his own making. The uniqueness of his strokes and his outstanding style imprint generalities, such as numbers, music, dilemmas, idiosyncrasies, love, and peace, that translate some of Lucas’ essence, past and present, into paper, canvas, and objects. By doing so, Lucas is taking the sub-genre of “doodle art” into previously uncharted territory. Lamenha is one of today’s most unique and innovative artists, and is certainly making waves in the contemporary art world.

Among his achievements, Lamenha has received significant national and international awards throughout his career, such as five trophies in the Gramado World Award (2003 and 2005) and two Short Lists in the London International Festival (2003), one of the most revered festivals in the world. He has exhibited his work throughout the world including Italy, Spain, the U.S., Paris, Taiwan, London and Brazil.
