Born and raised in Cannes in the south of France, painter and artist Lucas Beaufort is a self-proclaimed "skate rat." Inspired by board graphics, '90s nostalgia and the wider skate scene, Beaufort turned the monsters from his childhood nightmares into a body of work, which has been exhibited all over the world. For his next endeavour, he's looking to document the contrast between urban spaces and the wilderness, culminating in a final exhibition in London and an auction to raise funds for charity.
