Luke Kopycinski

Luke “Koppa” Kopycinski is a concept artist for a games company in Melbourne, Australia. His painting and sketches blow me away, each one showcasing his very impressive skills. He won a contest over at, so I’m not the only one that sees how great his work is.

For more of his work head on over to his portfolio. Koppa on Carbonmade

    What’s so great about his art? It lacks creativity and originality. Half of them look like it’s not even completed, and he just assed his way towards finishing it.

      There’s nothing new under the sun… I appreciate the skill and the vision reminds me of Ivan Albright whose work I have seen, smelled and almost touched in person…

    Sorry thats what you see in his work, everyone sees something different when they look at art.

    I love his work, and like the fact that paint is not spread across 100% of the canvas. Look at alla prima works by Michael Hussar, those are just as loose and brushy. And as far as originality goes, they’re figurative pieces, those kinds of works are not always wacky and crazy but more to show the emotion and appreciation seen in the human form.

    And that cross-hatching Luke gets in his graphite works in phenomenal. I wish I had as much skill and patience.

    Hey Davy – Maybe the works aren’t “finished” Not everything has to be clean, sparkling and polished to be enjoyed. By leaving them unfinished as you would say, Koppa is giving us an insight into the processes used. Its an entry point. It allows some involvement on your behalf to fill in the blanks instead of being fed all the in formation.

    “It lacks creativity and originality.” – How does it lack creativity?

    As for originality – We live in a post Modern world -everything has been done. What’s original?

    davy, please don’t say anything about anyone’s art unless you understand anything about it. This work is straight from the heart. Onniett

    I really dig this artists work. I don’t mind the “unfinished” aspects of the work, in fact I think they are some of the more interesting things in the work. As for originality I cant say I feel the same way. Example: the first work on this page looks a lot like an old Jenny Saville painting
