Born in Juneau, Alaska in 1978, Jason Lucas lived the majority of his early life between Southeast Alaska and Seattle. The hues, textures, and vast landscapes of Alaska along with the distinct contrasts and line work of Native American Art in the Pacific Northwest coast have always heavily influenced his work. Lucas has developed a unique method for creating his works through experimentation with different mediums, tools and techniques. He has continued to develop his presence in the cotemporary arena and is widely known for his simple line work and complex layering of textures creating a sense of Zen. He currently resides in Denver.
