Luke Elwes is a British artist whose paintings capture his encounters with the landscape and with the elements. He rose to prominence in the early nineties when he returned from his travels in India, Asia and North Africa with a series of key paintings. Luke’s recent works explore the fluid interaction of natural and manmade elements. We particularly love the mixed-media pieces that get ‘up close & personal’ to the landscape.
Luke trained at University of the Arts London. He also holds an MA in Art History from Birkbeck, London University. In 1996, the artist was awarded the Bayer Earth Art Prize. He has also received residency grants from two organisations in the US.
The artist has exhibited work in the UK, the US and Europe. The Royal Academy in London often showcases his work.
