Luke Morgan was born in Coventry (United Kingdom) in 1969. His interests in the visual arts stems from an early age as his father was a painter and ceramicist and his mother enjoyed photography. He grew up surrounded by photographs, paintings and sculptures. In 1986 he started a B-Tec Diploma in Art & Design and then went on to a B A Honours Degree in Fine Art Painting at Bristol Polytechnic. In 1996 he completed a Masters Degree in Art and Design Education at Warwick University for which he received "Distinction" for both his paintings and thesis on Art and Technology. His work has evolved over the years from being academic life study, through narrative art to abstract. Although his paintings are still largely representational with a photographic influence, he creates a dialogue between his subjects and the viewer by using compositional devises and colour. "I want to create a greater sense of empathy and nostalgia by exploring the ambiguity of form and it's relation to memory "
