Lukos completed his art studies in 2002 in Newcastle, Australia. During his studies, mostly in Painting and photography he was picked up by and represented in John Miller Gallery, a local commercial art gallery and center for the entire art scene. For such a young painter to have commercial success was an epochrial moment in his career. This began The artists life of travels and further exhibitions, world tours and more commissioned art pieces for private and public figures and businesses. Lukos discovered Prague in these travels and found it difficult to escape its inspired architecture, bohemian nights, its magic claws.
Since his time in Prague, Lukos has managed to fuse together his passion for the impressionists treatment of colour along with the cubists approach to composition. CUBistIC IMprESsioniSm.
An interest in perspective also permiates his works, how to look at something in a new light, visual answers to questions most scientists have difficulty trying to visualise in their minds. For example his work often depicts 5 dimensional space. What does that even look like?
Lukos is represented in Private collections around the globe.

News / Lukos Hey exhibits his paintings
Lukos Hey is an Australian painter, studied at the University of Newcastle, Australia. During his travels around the world where he was looking for an inspiration, he visited Prague, which enchanted him so much that he has already stayed there and has been living and working in Prague for more than 12 years. Lukos does not have a uniform style and his work is interesting, diverse, distinctive. He has a great sense of color combinations, oscillating between impressionism, cubism, magical realism.
His fragmented perspectives are classic for his buildings and landscapes. His work is represented in many private collections around the world. The European Union of Arts has selected the painter Lukos Hey as the holder of the European Award for artistic and cultural activities – Golden Europea 2021. His first artistic presentation this year will take place in the gallery on the square in Roudnice nad Labem from 15 June 2021.
