Luke Vinnicombe is a Scottish artist, born in Edinburgh in 1994. Luke specialises in painting and drawing, graduating from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen in 2016.
The subject of his work is set in a colourful fictional world that may seem absurd or even dreamlike. At first viewing this setting seems attractive through its rich colour, humour and calming appearance, however there is an underlying element of danger, oppression or uneasiness that lurks throughout the artwork. The subject of this alternative world connects to our reality as it refers to current political and social issues.
This sumptuous environment is woven together through the objects, characters and surroundings that reappear throughout the work. Often the landscapes and narratives of the various artworks contain intertwined and simultaneous stories, expanding the size of this constructed civilization.
