Lucas Simpson is a local artist with an art exhibit at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, he is involved in Kopialine Publishing, and is involved in bringing public art to his community. Lucas Simpson works with an acrylic medium on canvas, he specializes in in stylized impressionist-esc landscapes and enjoys. taking on more abstract figurative pieces.  When it comes to his landscape work, he is. drawn to perspectives that have a unique. background focus with a. convoluted foreground that offsets the focus of the painting. He chooses not to blend colours because it gives a more abstract and complex perspective to. even the simplest objects.
