Christopher Lucas a.k.a LUC started life on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, where at an early age he showed a remarkable passion for art and creativity.
In 2003, he moved to New York City where he has lived for the past fifteen years, continuing his art practice and achieving multiple successes in his career, lately becoming involved in community organizing through the arts, and dedicating the better part of the last decade to researching and writing a Historical Fiction Novel based on Norse Folklore and Mythology.
In 2012, LUC held his first major visual art show at SpeakeasyArt, a subterranean art gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, gathering praise from local business owners and residents. Again in 2014, LUC showed his works at the Easton Riverside Arts Festival in Easton, Pennsylvania, and in 2016 at the Galerie Mourlot on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in NYC.
Since then, he has provided illustration and design services to individuals and businesses globally, including Simon & Schuster’s Free Press Books, New York Organ Donor Network, Greenfair Oslo, Movies at the Mill Easton and the NYC based advertising firm of GSD&M. His 2016 “Moving With Mommy: A Child’s Guide to Exercise” children’s book collaboration with Author and Fitness Guru Yonit Yermish-Sedano is now available for purchase on Amazon.com and has shipped to several countries around the world, receiving numerous 5 star reviews.
Most notably, in 2017, LUC was commissioned by Columbia University’s Global Center in Paris, France to create a triptych for their Lobby at Reid Hall which were received with much fanfare.
