Lucas de Alcântara is an amazing artist from Brazil. He’s worked in design agencies, a clothing line, and as an illustrator. He’s got some serious talent and that’s why we’ve chosen him for an Artist Spotlight.
Some of Lucas de Alcântara’s designs have been featured on Threadless, Shirt.Woot, and even in books. It’s apparent that whether it’s painting or drawing [even digital] Lucas has developed this unique style – a style that’s cartoony yet mesmerizing. Truly it draws you in, but don’t just take my word for it. Let’s look at some of his work;
My favorite piece is Fiddler and The Waves (the second picture above) because I think it highlights what makes Lucas special. The way the colors blend on the canvas, the signature style the fiddler is drawn in, and the perspective of the scenery all make this piece excellent. It’s the type of piece I would put on my wall in the studio.
