About Lukas Göthman
Lukas Göthman was born in 1970 in Sweden. He lives and works in Stockholm (Sweden).
Lukas Göthman’s abstract paintings often deal with the theme of journeys, both real and imaginary. Texts also play a major role in his art. He himself says that the text always comes first. It might be a short story, a title, or something else. After this comes the painting. Göthman’s themes focus on issues of place and identity. His body of work consists of abstract artworks, one part of which has direct connotations of landscapes, and another consists of text-based works in which a phrase is repeated to create an abstract composition. In addition to painting, Göthman has also worked with performances and site-specific projects.
Lukas Göthman is represented by Helsinki Contemporary.
