Lucas Lelieveld (The Hague, 1969) is a visual artist whose work consists mainly, but not exclusively, of paintings and drawing. He also expresses himself trough animation, installations and collages.
In Lelieveld’s work there is the suggestion of space, either through perspective or the use of shades and colours. Also by showing the remains of the activities but not the actual people. He creates spaces in which the feeling of ambivalence and uneasiness, or melancholia, seems to prevail.
His work is a (re)search on the perception people have of their surroundings and personal space. It combines architecture, domestic life, and how we look at change.
Lucas Lelieveld is trained as a designer at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and the Muthesius Fachhochschule in Kiel, Germany (1991-1995). He is a member of Arti et Amicitae in Amsterdam. Lucas has also done work in commission for the North Sea Jazz Festival, the Ministry of Finance of the Netherlands and different museums. He was one of the artists at the last edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival.
