Biography

Lukas Avalon

(Monaco, b. 1990)

Monégasque artist Lukas Avalon is turning the origins of street art on its head by

bringing it onto the canvas. He meets the challenge of removing street art from its

urban environment, while maintaining the socially relevant themes paramount to the

art form, and ultimately elevates and emphasizes the talents possessed by street

artists.

Inspired by pioneering Contemporary and street artists such as Andy Warhol, Jean-

Michel Basquiat and Shepard Fairey, Lukas Avalon also uses his art as a form of

advocacy. His highly detailed canvases transcend rather than merely criticize or

negate the status quo. With a constant finger on the pulse, he engages the

consideration and empathy of the viewer.

Avalon’s paintings pay tribute to leading figures from the past up until today such as:

Grace Kelly and Kate Moss, among others. Realising the power of fame and our

society’s emulation of celebrity, Avalon’s central portraits further his subdued social

commentary, which is typically hidden amidst the collaged backgrounds of his

canvases.

Despite his street art influences, Avalon is increasingly introducing contemporary and

Pop Art techniques in his creations. In every piece, the artist strongly conveys his

powerful emotional personality through his backgrounds which, speak louder than

words. Also, the chosen characters which Avalon uses in his works, aid to portray his

feelings and allow the audience to perceive his pieces through their own emotions.
