Alex Lukas is a printmaker, painter, zine publisher and illustrator whose diverse output evades these simple classifications. His work often features imagery of stark architecture or barren landscapes and his mixed media techniques add a surreal flavor to the subject matter. Alex is a resident at Space 1026er, a long-standing creative community based in Philadelphia and is also the founder of Cantab, a zine publishing company he started in 2001.
Featured here is a new 72-page, 8.5″ x 7.25″ zine called RTMA which mixes screen printing, photocopy, diazotype and offset pages with an offset cover. Modified photos mixed with geometric patterns and hand-drawn type contrasted against clean modern typesetting make up this diverse book that somehow feels chaotic and serene all at the same time.
