LUCAS RAYNAUD
Growing Up

These pieces represent the juxtaposition of the innocence and fun of my childhood with the raw and unfiltered grittiness of my adolescence and young adulthood.  I discovered Hip-Hop in middle school and it provided me an identity.  The graffiti, the music and the dance shaped that time of my life and would later give me the opportunity the travel and experience all corners of the world dancing for artists.  This series is simply my exploration and combination of growing up.

About the Artist
After spending over 10 years traveling the world dancing with the likes of Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Justin Timberlake, Lucas switched his creativity to the fine art world.  Focusing on woodwork, sculpture and canvas work, he tackles political and social issues but also mixes in pop art and heavy doses of nostalgia.  Lucas attempts to balance pieces that stir up emotions and feelings while at the same time creating works ripe with juxtaposition.  The majority of his pieces are created on wood, which is his medium of choice.  He has collaborated with artists from around the world including Dourone, Rene Gagnon, Moncho, Augor MSK, Flore and Plastic Jesus.
