Artist Statement:

Luke Vinnicombe is a young Scottish artist who specializes in painting and drawing. The subject of his work is set in a colourful fictional world that may seem absurd or even dreamlike. At first viewing this setting seems attractive through its rich colour, humour and calming appearance, however there is an underlying element of danger, oppression or uneasiness that lurks throughout the artwork. The subject of this alternative world connects to our reality as it referes to current political and social issues. 

This sumptuous environment is woven together through the objects, characters and surroundings that reappear throughout the work. Often the landscapes and narratives of the various artworks contain intertwined and simultaneous stories, expanding the size of this contructed civilization. 


Born 1994. Edinburgh, Scotland. 

Currently lives and works in Edinburgh 



2012 - 2016 BA (Hons) Painting
