“Have you ever paid attention to the little things in daily life? They are wonderful if you spend some time to appreciate them… ” Luke Newton, the young British artist who graduated from Saint Martin’s School, is sharing his views of contemporary society through his artworks inspired by the small things in daily life. Like a flash and without apparent correlation, his art works, encourage the imagination to zap fast from one image to another. Luke Newton accumulates the most mundane things of his daily life, and interprets it subversively. His artworks are a reflection of a society in which he believes everyone tries to renew and create within the confines of routine. The interpretation of Luke Newton is harsh and always with British humor. His artworks are able to stimulate the imagination of the public bringing them into a dimension of derision and gravity.
