Lukas Bagemehl (LERK) is a self-taught artist, creating works of art for the last 12 years. He was born and currently resides in Sheboygan. Working with several mediums, including acrylic, spray paint, graphite and markers, Lukas knew when he was growing up sitting in the car waiting for the trains to pass to see the graffiti that he was going to be a creative soul. He was intrigued by the imagery on each train car, whether it be the characters, the funky lettering or the blasts of vibrant colors. This is the main reason Lukas is an artist today. He brings a rustic feel to his work from the inspiration of trains as well, crafting paintings on canvas that create the illusion of rust, wood or cement, or even painting directly on rust. Lukas also creates paintings that are quite clean and don’t possess a rustic quality to them at all. His main goal is to balance the contrast of mediums, giving everything its own light.
The opening reception is free and open to the public. The Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information about the show or the UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus Fine Arts Gallery, please contact Gallery Director Dan Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
