I remember when I first met Lucas Bambo, an infectious smile, a calm demeanor, and a humble spirit. I met him while he was putting the final touches on a book that was going to be shipped for printing in the USA.
This a self taught artist from Limpopo in his 50’s and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. He has developed his very unique linocut style over the past 30 years. His patterns are prominent and soothing, and his subject matter reflects his own observations in his surroundings. They have a playful, honest immediateness about them.
Although he lives very isolated in the rural parts of Limpopo, he has travelled to Mexico and Switzerland for his exhibitions, and is currently working on a book illustrating commission with his linocuts.
We are very happy to have this hardworking artist’s work that we can share with you.
