Luke Chiswell

Luke Chiswell is a visual artist who floats between Australia and New York City. Born and raised in the Australian bush, Luke began creating art on his family farm, just an hour outside of Canberra. Honing inspiration from his passion for skateboarding, he realized at a young age that he could create in everyday spaces. Luke’s early works can be seen on wearables like shirts and shoes as he designed patents for textile companies. His designs caught an international following, and demand grew for his limited edition prints. Luke's Straight Face exhibition, which he conceived from a daydream in 2006, showcased his utilization of simple yet resonating elements. He moved on to recycling old skateboards collected over the years, carving and burnishing the wood until each became the beautiful sculptures of the Trophies series. Using a variety of mediums and techniques, Luke draws on the stark contrast between his environments and his experiences within each of them to explore the intimacy of drawing, designing, sculpture and screen printing. His passion for skateboarding continues to inspire him, and his early life in the Bush has always compelled him to create beauty out of simplicity. It is this ability to create a home within fluidity that makes his work wholly primal and honest whilst also unnervingly complex and enigmatic.
