LAVAL, QC, March 12, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Centre Laval is proud to announce that it is presenting the exhibit La Vallée by artist Lucas Saenger at the Amalgame Urban Art gallery. La Vallée is an evocative work that conjures an aura of poetic calm thanks to landscapes that seamlessly shift from nighttime to daytime. The exhibit will be held until May 9, 2019.
Developed in collaboration with La Centrale des artistes during the spring of 2018, Amalgame Urban Art Gallery is a one-of-a-kind concept that allows people to discover talented artists in the visual, media and digital arts—and unique, non-commercial venues.
Cominar provides consumers with opportunities to admire the works of emerging artists. It also allows Centre Laval to play a pivotal role in developing new places to showcase artistic works for people in Laval.
After spending several years as a graphic designer, Lucas Saenger now works as an independent artist on a variety of projects—from logos to mural paintings to album covers.
"I carry out my work using different approaches. On the one hand, I design images that are very sleek and minimalist. On the other hand, I use my instinct to draw works that resemble comic book illustrations. Sometimes, these two worlds collide and intertwine.
Lucas draws inspiration from a wide range of sources, whether it's the Miyazaki's world of Manga and nature artwork or The Weird's illustrator collective, delves into the heart of each style to envision his very own creations.
