“Found Art” Creations

Charlie Lucas has been creating artwork from discarded objects since he was three years old. He began by making small toys for himself and his siblings and progressed rapidly into building large-scale works before he was a teenager. Watching his great grandfather create in his blacksmith’s shop, Charlie felt the bubble of an artist about to burst from within him. Finding himself unable to work later in life, Charlie asked God to guide and direct him.  His art is what God told him to do.

Charlie’s art comes to him through his dreams and is created using discarded items, a welding machine, and a cutting torch. The recycled objects that he uses influence the shape and size of his sculptures, but the finished product is truly his own. Born of an adventurous spirit and a desire to create, Charlie’s art is a reflection of his belief in God and the power within.

Charlie’s work is also available for sale and display in galleries and showrooms around the world.
