“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
- Mark Twain
Kyle Lucks was born to create. He was the kid that was always constructing, sketching, modifying – using anything he could to bring his imagination to life. He comes from a lineage of artists, therefore much of his talent can be attributed to the creative environment he grew up in. When he wasn’t playing sports, he would draw from photographs in sports books, to the point where he could recreate images from memory.
At age 12, one of Kyle’s hockey drawings was featured in a Sports Illustrated publication. This accomplishment, paired with a passion for sports and a talent for visual art, solidified his calling to become professional artist.
Today, Kyle specializes in large scale portraits of athletes, musicians, entertainers, and historical figures. He is inspired by their fierce dedication to their craft, and the energy and focus it takes to be successful at the highest level. With every piece, Kyle strives to capture the emotion within the moment, whether that is a touchdown celebration or an acoustic performance.
He is proud to have his work hanging in sports stadiums, restaurants, corporate offices, and the homes of private collectors.
