Lucas Grogan

Hello folks,

I recently found a link to Lucas Grogan's work, and I love it!  He is a Melbourne based artist and his website is:

You'll find this blurb about him on there...

"Lucas Grogan is a Melbourne based artist who uses needlepoint, installation, painting and drawing to explore themes of isolation, inclusion and cultural collisions, through an autobiographical lens. Having studied at the University of Newcastle, Grogan has exhibited in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hong Kong. His work has been collected by Newcastle Region Art Gallery, Artbank, Duetsche Bank and private collections."
He uses a lot of blue and white, and I like that his work has lots of pattern, words and it looks like aboriginal paintings.  Best of all, it looks like he has a lot of fun with his work (I may be wrong, but I think it looks like a lot of fun to make)!

I especially love the piece 'You Look Terrific Babe' that he did for Movida (a great tapas bar in Melbourne) in Hosier lane, which is really close to The Forum and Federation Square.

You can see him in action in this link...
