Artist Lukas Kwant is known for his use in contrasts and his expressionist style of painting. His paintings exude power, energy and victory. With his artwork Lukas encourages you to always challenge yourself. "Make the best of everything. Do not stick to the rules and trust your intuition. Let go of all your thoughts and open up. The sky is the limit!"
"I love to put colors next to each other that are clashing! This provokes a exiting energy. I always look for contrasts and love shocking effects! That makes both the painting process and the finished painting vibrant." Lukas creates a painting in less than 20 minutes. He is forced to make quick choices, which corresponds to his philosophy: don't overthink, think quick! The use of color and the shape of the brush strokes depends on his personal state of mind and the chemistry between him and the male model. "I capture the energy of the man and turn it into colors and finally into a painting."
