Lucas Dillon

Lucas Dillon (b.1990) is an Irish artist currently working in Peckham, London. He was born in Hounslow, London and spent his upbringing in Belfast. In 2008 he returned to London to study Sculpture at Camberwell School of Art. Throughout Lucas Dillon’s works one can observe a collection of references pulled together by the use of comic imagery and fragments of popular culture. These points of reference can be found to merge and dissolve within notions of expression, against the backdrop of art history. Lucas uses found objects, drawing and a varied range of materials to bring to question traditional preconceptions of the inherent nature of an artwork and its limitations.
