About Me

Lucas Bononi (b. 1991 | Los Angeles) Is a contemporary painter living and working in New York, NY.

Lucas reflects the sensation of nature through the lens of the modern world in his paintings with nuance

and subtle visual splashes of color and light that tell the story of living in a city while expressing natures

unrepeatable beauty. It is in this way that he invites us to question the relationship between beauty and

chaos, as well as, figuration and abstraction. His participation in leading museums, galleries and press

stretches worldwide.
