Lucas Cantú Mexico, b. 1982

Lucas Cantú (Mexico, b.1982) is an artist trained in architecture. He uses sculpture, installation, abstract and experimental architecture to develop projects that come from a formal and personal language. His work is interested in the exploration of materials and construction processes. He researches sinseñalismo to find a connection between outer and natural space with art, bring chaos to nature, generate utopian and dystopian scenarios.

 

In 2015, he developed Tezontle in collaboration with Carlos H. Matos, a project that uses tools and methodologies of architecture and sculpture to build an idiosyncratic imaginary that refers to a bucolic utopia, modernist, pre-Hispanic and primitive at the same time.
