Early Life and Education
Lucas Beaufort has long been an avid skater. Late in life, however, he began using paintbrush to express himself creatively through monster illustrations which quickly rose in popularity among both skate magazines and murals worldwide.
He has taken his passion for printed media into a feature length documentary film titled Devoted and collaborated with brands like Vans and Burton while running Art Camp as his own creative outlet. Additionally, he serves as an encouragement figure who encourages others to pursue their goals with passion.
