Description - Artist & Artwork

Tomas Lacke was born in 1976 and is active in Åkersberga, Stockholm. He is a self-taught contemporary artist who works experimentally to find new ways through art. With different styles and material choices, he has built a broad portfolio in both painting and sculpture where he focuses on modern society. His style is influenced by classical oil painting, street art and religious imagery. In artistry there is a fascination for creating something beautiful out of the darkness that surrounds us. Lacke shines a light on man and his behaviour.

A STYLE OF HIS OWN

EXPERIMENTS THAT CREATE NEW PATHS THROUGH ART

Tomas Lacke freely experiments with both techniques and materials. Pop art, classic oil painting, installations, and sculptures. Often the works have clear religious undertones. The result is dark, present, and intense. Without visible brush strokes, it is as if the canvases have created themselves.

"I HAVE ALWAYS DRAWED, PAINTED AND CREATED THINGS. IT HAS BEEN THERE ALL THE TIME. MAYBE BECAUSE I AM OTHERWISE A RESTLESS PERSON.”

- TOMAS LACKE -

SCULPTURES, PAINTINGS, AND INSTALLATIONS

THE WORLD PROVIDES A CONSTANT FLOW OF IDEAS

The inspiration comes from our society and nature with all its colors and shapes. New thoughts and ideas are constantly born and without constant creation and experimentation, Lacke's internal memory bank would quickly become full. Sometimes things don't go as he intended, but even failed experiments pave the way for his future new techniques and ideas.

A FRAME THE WORK DESERVES

In your own frame workshop, you can botanize among lots of frame options. Hand-gilded classic frame, modern lists, UV-protecting glass, or all imaginable variations in between. We help you arrange the framing your work deserves to take off!

RESTLESS HUNT FOR STIMULUS

LIGHT AND DARKNESS IN OUR CONTEMPORARY TIMES

Our environment and humanity's behavior, technology addiction and vanity create a constant stream of inspiration and stimulation for Tomas Lacke to be fascinated by and draw inspiration from. From the gloomy and contemporary anguish and fears, he brings forth a hopeful light and the beautiful.

RELUCTANT ARTIST

THE ARCHETYPICAL ARTIST ROLE DOESN'T SUIT LACKE

"I have never liked to call myself an 'artist'. I usually say that I work as an artist because I sell what I create. Otherwise, I'm probably as far from the classic archetype of "Artist" as you can get. If you don't pay a visit to my head - then maybe you would say the opposite!”
