BIO
Luke Gray (UK) is a perpetual traveller and multimedia fine artist specializing in surrealist paintings and large scale augmented reality murals. Born colour blind he was forced to use an almost exclusively monochrome palette, working with patterns and textures rather than colour. Growing up mixed race in a multicultural family he grew up with an interest in different cultures and began to explore ethnography and world travel. After hitchhiking across 50+ countries on his travels his work became influenced by a wide range of multicultural art styles and traditional mediums - combining and integrating techniques and patterns from different cultures into his work.  Informed by this ethnographic research of traditional cultures and indigenous tribes, he spends time to live with them and learn from them taking meticulous notes on their textiles, tattoo markings, rituals, altered states, and sacred symbols and tries to preserve them in his art.
