Alexey Luka is a highly talented Russian street artist and illustrator who blends abstract characters with organic shapes and geometric compositions. He’s been active on the streets for quite some time now, and covered walls, canvases, collages and digital panels with his unique style.
The base of his inspiration comes from his architecture studies that show a very structural nature in his works. He started with graffiti, later switched to the abstract graphic forms, always using color as the prime element in his work. It’s safe to say that he perfected his style based on the clear geometrical forms and complex post-constructivist compositions.
Spray cans, acrylic paints, collage or sculpturing techniques, it all works together in harmony. He produces recognizable compositions in which the colorful palette, and geometric shapes interact, developing a sort of puzzle that attract viewers to reconstruct and deduce the images.
Although at first glance his pieces look like abstract paintings, all of them are composed of minimalistic characters and hidden stories. Humanoid faces and landscapes in non-abstract forms are only a subtle hint to involve the viewer into noticing the image through the activation of imagination. Incredibly clean lines, the pairing of muted tones, and rounded compositions all come together to form organic shapes and geometrical large-scale pieces.
