Lucas MATHEVON alias LUMA is an artist born in 1987, in Saint-Etienne in France. It is completely self-taught that the young artist first trained in drawing and, since 2007 in painting on canvas. Painting quickly becomes more important than drawing and LUMA does not take long to make its first exhibitions.
LUMA draws its inspiration from its different passions: music, sport and history. His art, on the other hand, is instinctive, generally starting from associations of colors which he will develop and let live on his canvas; its abstract backgrounds in bright, flashy colors, take up some of the effects of urban walls. He paints with a touch and a dynamic, brutal line, to capture the expressions of the different faces.
We generally see in his portraits and in the numerous writings which surround him, social themes arise. He expresses his feelings towards our society and likes to make him feel through his works.
