Lucas Hamann, MD, was born 1997 in Germany but has been living in Portugal since he was a child. From a very young age he spent the most of his free time in nature, appreciating the beauty and peace someone can only find in the midst of a forest or a mountain. During his school education, ironically, he was not the most interested person in art, and stayed rather focused on science, and chose to become a Medical Doctor.
During his medical studies he found his love for art and sculpting, not only as a way of meditation and peacefulness but also as a distraction from the medical field, finding a balance between imaginative expression and objective thinking.
The essence of his work correlates to what he was most impressed by as a child, the calming, elegant ways and life cycle of nature. Therefore, the purpose of his artwork lays in finding a way to embrace and preserve the natural beauty of a long dead tree, keeping and respecting its essence, and then diving into a world of imagination to create something that feels Alive and Youthful where Death and Decay has had its place for decades.
Works as a Medical Doctor in Portugal, with interest in further specialization in either Rheumatology or Psychiatry.
