LUCAS DAVID MAKES THE MOST CREEPY BEAUTIFUL ART YOU'VE EVER SEEN

Posted on

Celebrity fan art is all over the Internet. Artists beg to be noticed by musicians, but Lucas Davis does not need to beg. His art speaks for itself. The portraits he creates are eerily spectacular. He portrays some of the most iconic women and men in a unique light, from Lana Del Rey to Kurt Cobain and Marilyn Manson to Winona Ryder. His muses are re-imagined as ghoulish caricatures of themselves. There are red eyes with dark circles, traces of blood, and  exaggerated features like razor sharp cheekbones or extra long, thin fingers. His stylized pieces with detailed line work and perfect colors are easily recognizable and loved by celebs and fans alike. 

 

SOCIAL DECAY:How old were you when you started making art?

LUCAS DAVID: When I was in high school, I thought I was not really good at anything, but creating was the exception. I like making music and painting. I decided at age 16 I wanted to be an artist because I fucking hate school or working… I started painting with oil and when I was 18 I started making more sketches and doodles and finally painting them with mixed media. 

SD: How long did it take you to develop your signature style? Or did it just come naturally?

LD: I think the signature style came just naturally. Not a lot of people have the opportunity to see how their mind looks like, inside.  And that's a thing I discovered as a very young age and it helped me a lot. Knowing what your passion is and what you want to do when you are a kid is awesome. 

 

SD: Who is your favorite muse to draw?

LD: I don't know, actually. I just like drawing models or whatever my mind feels at the moment, but i'd say the first one was Taylor Momsen.

 

SD: Who was the first celeb to repost your work? Did you freak out?!

LD: The first celeb to repost my art was Taylor Momsen as well. I freaked the fuck out because you know she's my muse and I'm her #1 fan. It was in 2011 and it was an ugly sketch! I was dead, however she loved it… I started making a lot of drawings of Taylor. I did a drawing per day from 2010 to 2013.  I'm not gonna lie; I have hundreds of drawings of her. 

SD: What music do you like to listen to when you create?

LD: I listen to a lot of commercial rock like Nirvana, Marilyn Manson, The smashing pumpkins, Sonic Youth, The Distillers, Hole, etc etc. I also enjoy some Lana Del Rey or Mazzy star, and I think I’ll listen to a lot of Alice glass.
