Mark Luukas has been painting professionally since 1997. He sold his first work at the age of 18. He studied HND Fine Art at the North West Regional College before his first solo show in 2008 in the Edward Gallery in Derry.
Since then he has shown at a joint exhibition in the Glebe Gallery in Letterkenny and two joint exhibitions in the Context Gallery in Derry.
His artwork has changed over the years and has accumulated to a large number of paintings. This exhibition, ‘The District of Art', is a mixture of paintings that are based from the mind as in context of invention, and of memory which allows for a sophisticated and deep self-expression within both of the realms.
