Born in Leiden, 1972. Lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin.

The Dutch artist Lucas Lenglet looks for ways to paint "aggression", "violence", but also "shelter" in his work, without making it visible in an illustrative way. Even the Camouflage, in its militaristic sense, is an important and recurring element in his work. His installations often refer to historical-artistic icons, used as a starting point to arrange his sometimes scenic architecture, highlighting social issues.
