Nurturing a Passion: Lacke's Journey from Graphic Arts to Full-Time Artist
Lacke's natural attraction to color, design, and art led him to study graphic arts, and he worked for many years in a printing company. This experience immersed him in the world of color and paper, leading him to develop a passion for art. He now dedicates himself full-time to his work as an artist, creating pieces that are both visually stunning and thought-provoking.

Lacke's Path of Learning, Fun, and Artistic Inspiration
Lacke's creative process is based on learning, working, and having fun. He tries to understand why things happen and what happens during the creative process, which leads him to develop concentration and a state of the here and now that is reflected in his work through gestures and colors. He finds that inspiration comes from working, as other artists have said before. As soon as he starts working, he finds all the possible ways and solutions to face the new work he starts.
Weaving Dreams into Art
Lacke's dream project is "The Knit as a Protagonist," a series he has been working on since 2018. He conceives the point as the most primary and essential element in developing his works. He seeks inspiration for it in both the macro and micro worlds, representing circular, spherical, or elliptical shapes as a way of manifesting our union with nature. His favorite piece is one that conveys a message of peace, optimism, and joy to the viewer.
Spreading Peace, Optimism, and Joy
As an artist, Lacke's goal is to convey a message of peace, optimism, and joy to the viewer of his work. His main goal is to have as many people on this planet as possible experience his art, so he works tirelessly to present it in as many venues as he can. He balances his artistic vision with the expectations of clients or patrons who commission his work by focusing on his primary goal of conveying a message of peace, optimism, and joy to the viewer.
Lacke believes that artists and art, in general, have the task of inviting all human beings to learn to think for themselves. Society has only imposed standards on us that have made us increasingly unhappy and ignorant. Constant learning is always the only way to feel fulfilled and useful in life. As an artist, Lacke tries to suppress barriers, differences, and limits, creating a universal language that takes the spectator to a silent contemplation that transmits an almost mystical and globalized sensation of seeing the world. His works are a testament to his dedication to his craft and his desire to share his vision with the world.
