About the Artist

1980 Cannes, France

Lucas Beaufort – Cannes, 1980

Lucas Beaufort is a French artist. Rue James Grant Milne is the street where a child with a bright mind grew up. It is the setting where monsters, figments of surreal imagination came alive in a chimerical and illusory way. Scared, but at the same time fascinated by Samuel Marshall Raimi’s horrors films such as Ghost House and the Spider Man series, Beaufort is the director of his own imagination.

He is tormented by creatures which live in his mind and through slim, continuous lines he fulfils his desire and need to create his monsters. The essence of the figures goes beyond the illusion and becomes real. Rue James Grant Milne isn’t only an artistic inspiration, it is the street where his biggest passion was born: skateboarding. Beaufort’s monsters invade magazine covers. The colourful and gaudy figures contaminate the photographs and change the scene over and alongside top international skaters: Andrew Reynolds, Arto Saari, Chris Haslam, Geoff Rowley, Jim Greco, Lance Mountain, Mark Gonzales, Nassim Guammaz, Neen Williams. These athletes share their cover stories with mysterious entities which can be fans or only spectators. Monsters attempt to dethrone the protagonist.

In 2013 Beaufort’s Recover project was born thanks to the success of covers from publications such as Kingpin, Onboard, Sidewalk, Skateboarder, Skateboarding, The Skateboard Mag, Sugar and Thrasher, it is a compendium of his most famous works in a limited edition of 430 copies.
