The Love Story behind People Are Strange

Meet Lucas David

Guadalajara native, now Californian, Lucas paints Gothic portraits mainly of celebrities. Due to rejection from a Mexican art school, Lucas relocated to Los Angeles. Inspired by Jim Morrison, and The Doors, Lucas named his collection “People are Strange.”

“I think art saves lives because…it’s just a way of distracting yourself and giving your life a purpose.”— Lucas David

Upon his arrival, Lucas fell in love with L.A. culture, but soon succumbed to the stress of transitions. As a result, his health declined. Admittedly, he acknowledges he used to wallow in his dark place to improve his art. But now, rather than steeping himself in self-destructive tendencies, he uses art to express the here and now.
