Jorge Luccas- Artist Designer 

Mr. Luccas is a Portuguese Artist Designer who dedicates his time exploring the value of the word “Joy” and questioning our illusional notion of humanity. The artist believes that Joy should be a fundamental element in everyone’s life, so he uses art as a creative outlet to show how the state of permanent joy has the power to transform people’s behaviour and lifestyle by simply rediscovering their true identity. Luccas is currently based in London, where he has been working on projects ranging from product/ interior design to art shows to collaborations with brands.
