About Damien Lucas

He also completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts at National Art School, Sydney, in 2004, and received the Defiance Award for Excellence in Sculpture. He is well versed both in classicism & modernism in the figure and abstraction, working in a variety of mediums including clay, plaster, stone, wood, steel and bronze. He has successfully installed various large scale public commissions. Currently Damien conducts private classes at Byron Bay Sculpture School and works at his studio in Byron Bay.

2022 SWELL ARTWORK – Buena Fortuna, Damien Lucas

“Buena Fortuna” is a little nautical. Full, bold, and balanced – it’s bow ploughs nonchalantly into the unknown. A little large for either a charm or an amulet, it nevertheless is charged with good fortune.
