FEATURED ARTIST

LUCAS BEAUFORT

To start off can you introduce yourself ?
My name is Lucas Beaufort, I’am a 33 years old French dreamer. I was born in Cannes and still live around.

Can you talk about your background into Art ? When and How did you start drawing stuff ?
My mother has always painted. I grew up with this environment of creation. When I was a kid I loved to build huts or bows. I thought I was an indian. I started to paint quite late but it was more than a necessity.

What is your involvment into skateboarding ?
It’s all my life. It’s probably the reason why I paint. I’ve always been crazy about board graphics. When I was a teenager I did not care about the brand I just wanted a nice graphic. I’m 32 years old now and I feel like 18 on my skateboard.

How skateboarding influences your art ?
I’m a real skate rat. I love to spend time watching stuff on Internet. There are so many things today, not easy to stay on top.
I’m pretty nostalgic of the 90s. When a skate video came out it was crazy. I guess that what emerges from my art comes from the 90s.
