“Light is what binds my works together, as if I am balancing light and shadow”, says Lucas Arruda. This first monograph on his work explores, across a selection of his most beautiful works, the pursuit of light in his sky, sea and jungle paintings. With texts by Fernanda Brenner and Chris Sharp, as an introduction by publisher Staffan Ahrenberg and excerpts from a conversation between Lucas Arruda and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Lucas Arruda was born in São Paolo, Brazil in 1983 and currently lives and works in São Paulo. He is represented by Mendes Wood DM.

Arte Brasil” at Kunsthal KAde, Amersfoort (2016), “New Shamans/Novos Xamãs: Brazilian Artists” at Rubell Family Collection, Miami (2016).
