"Joshu Lucas: Solo Exhibition"
2001-01-08 until 2001-02-02
Sylvia White Gallery, Contemporary Artists' Services
Santa Monica, CA, USA United States of America

We are pleased to start the year with a Solo Exhibition of paintings, bronzes, and iris prints by Joshu Lucas.  Lucas' work is autobiographical and influenced by his love and respect of human diversity.  He was named after Japanese Zen Master Joshu Suzaki, and is a student of Tae Kwon Do.    Joshu is bi-racial, raised by his African American mother in Los Angeles.  His art is a testimony to overcoming the brutality of urban streets.  Stabbed at 17 and shot at 19, his work is a celebration of the human body.  He works to bring cultures together through the beauty of art.

Both athlete and aesthete, Lucas graduated from Fairfax High School and went on to play NCAA basketball.  He graduated from the College of Notre Dame outside of San Francisco with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in June 1999. His early influence in painting came from Los Angeles artist Tony DeCarlo, and he has studied sculpting with Los Angeles artist Dale Edwards.  

Lucas has shown his work in numerous West Coast galleries and non-profit spaces, including a recent show titled Race, Culture and Ethnicity at the Second City Council in Long Beach.  His work is on display in numerous corporate collections locally and abroad.
