The pleasant and calm days of summer are over. Winds change. The stars and moons hide beyond the horizon of missed opportunities.
Listen to the quietness of the unknown terrain. Seek opportunity to connect with the untouched lands and feel the nature ahead of you.
The vast desert awaits you, the end seems unreachable. Remarkable landmarks call you from the distance. Stand up, take one step and the rest will feel effortless.
Reach out to the pulsing sky and their stars. The sound of complete silence lives inside your veins. Breath in the void of nightfall.
A beautiful sunset in an isolated forest. The hidden place of nature. Shining northern lights and stars create a mystical, unreal atmosphere.
Uncharted Memories tells a story about wanderers who seek directions and a path to follow. They’re wandering through lifeless landscapes and under dying stars.
They traveled through the vast lands of an empty desert to find the light. Day after day, with their destination always visible at the horizon.
Silenced Gods tells a story about the lost souls of our past and people who seek their amount of triumph. The world around them has become unstable long ago.
A long forgotten place where everyting calls for attention. The huge pyramids. The bright sun. The quiet river. The stars that shape signs. Everything.
Gazing the Unknown was created out of depression. It’s a very personal piece of artwork. A wanderer looking for purpose in a lonely world. I drew what I was feeling.
The theme of Follow the Hollow was abstraction and distortions. It was a successful experiment. The focus was obviously the sky and the sun.
Inspired by a colorful sky I’ve seen while driving home I made Rest in the Storm later that day. The desire to draw was there and the barriers shattered.
The city that never gave up. World War 2 was a cruel devastation on all sides. Fortunately Hiroshima thrives in love, culture and many colorful cherry blossoms.
A place where the 80s neon lights never dissolved. Miami can mean a lot of things. For me it‘s not just a city or a vacation or a dream. It’s what made me »me«.
I reimagined the Vika portrait with another model. The amount of painted and drawn areas increased and I think it was the right decision to flesh those aspects out.
I have never been prouder about an artwork I did. The original’s gorgeous on its own but focusing on the prettiest aspects of her face made me believe I can make her stand out even more.
Once I wanted to create a fusion of a photography and a drawing. This is the result. Nowadays I see portraits in a different light. Vikas portrait is the reason why.
I'm Lucas Dietrich, born in 1994 and raised in my hometown Münster, Germany.
My friends and my family would describe me as someone close to a perfectionist. I like clean, organized and minimalistic places and workspaces. I'm a creative introvert and see myself as very honest, trustworthy and thoughtful. I'm the opposite of impulsive with my decisions, everything I do has a purpose or needed a lot of thought. I'm a true analyst.
An interesting question to get to know someone is:
What trait would another person discover in you instantly, that makes you special? Or phrased otherwise: What should others know about you? When I thought about that I instantly had my neophobia in mind. I don't like changes. I like order and structure. Other people wouldn't recognize it instantly of course, but early on I think.
Currently I'm working as a designer at shopware AG. I develop new ideas for our website, the brand itself and help to optimize the design of the website as well as the code.
Today I would consider saying it's my dream job. I love to be creative in this area, make up design patterns and adapt to new trends when they emerge.
Despite my neophobia I really adore to experiment with other creative work like video production, music production, animations, illustrations, interior design or even writing for books. In fact in a perfect future I want to have written and published a book, illustrated books for children and do what I do now at a larger scale as full-time job.
Personally I like to present the best side of me without exception.
As stated before I'm currently living in Münster and plan to do so for at least the next couple of years.
This place on earth is my home and while other cities and countries have they own interesting facets and beauty attached to them I guess I'll stick around for quite some time.
I really like to be independent. In every aspect of my life. Most of the time I see myself as an individual who isn't bound or depended on someone or something. Or doesn't want to be at least. No one is really free in this regard - but we all can strive to be.
