Lucas Dillon

Lucas Dillon (b.1990) is an Irish artist currently working in Peckham, London. Born in Hounslow and spending his upbringing in Belfast, Dillon returned to London in 2008 to study Sculpture at Camberwell School of Art. Throughout his works one can observe a collection of references pulled together through the use of comic imagery and strange fragments of popular culture. Using found objects, drawing and a varied range of materials to bring to question traditional preconceptions of the nature of an artwork and its limitations, Dillon’s art practice can be seen to work within the realms of what has been termed Comic Abstraction, yet to be consistently pushing at the boundaries of any fixed genre.
