David Lucas has been painting, drawing and exhibiting full time since completing a BA(honours) degree in Fine Art, Painting in 1987. During this time the artist has been based in Sheffield where in 1990 his first large solo exhibition was held at The Mappin Art Gallery. This marked a development into working on large scale canvases in order to make full use of the huge gallery space and to surround the viewers scope of vision. During the nineties Lucas continued to produce large scale paintings showing them in alternative venues such as nightclubs and former industrial premises as well as public and private galleries. Since then he has added art fairs in London, Glasgow and Manchester and open studio events to his regular gallery presentations. Throughout a professional career spanning three decades Lucas has exhibited widely in the UK. His work has been met with critical acclaim and is held in many collections world wide. The latest body of work has been inspired by the sea, particularly the North Sea but his interest in philosophy and astrophysics has also informed his outlook and approach.
