Lucas Grogan lives and works in Melbourne. He began exhibiting in 2005 and since that time has had a meteoric rise to prominence. Essentially a textile artist who also employs drawing, Grogan uses line and pattern in the absence of color, often pairing his unique graphic style with an acerbic wit. His pithy phrases and vignettes of everyday life simultaneously make acute observations while finding connections across a broad spectrum of experiences. Lucas Grogan has appeared in numerous art and design publications and has undertaken a number of large-scale wall commissions such as the façade of MoVida in Hosier Lane in Melbourne. His work has been collected by Deutsche Bank, Wesfarmers, David Walsh, Artbank, Newcastle Region and Art Gallery and numerous important private collections: Murdoch’s, Toni Collette and Catherine Martin to name but a few.
