Lucas MATHEVON alias LUMA is an artist born in 1987, in Saint-Etienne in France. It is in total autodidact that the young artist forms firstly in the drawing and, since 2007 in the painting on canvas. Painting quickly became more important than drawing and LUMA soon had his first exhibitions.
LUMA draws his inspiration from his different passions which are music, sports and history. As for his art, it is instinctive, generally starting from associations of colors that he will develop and let live on his canvas; his abstract backgrounds of bright colors, flashy, take up some effects of urban walls. He paints with a dynamic, brutal touch and stroke to capture the expressions of the different faces. We generally see in his portraits and in the numerous writings that surround him, social themes emerge. He expresses his feelings about our society and likes to make them felt through his.
