Lucas beaufort artiste performance Etretat peinture maillot de bain inédit

Lucas Beaufort

Since its creation, Apnée likes to meet committed artists.

This year, we are happy to collaborate with Lucas Beaufort, an unclassifiable artist, open to the world and to humans. Born in Cannes, passionate about skateboarding, Lucas started drawing late at the age of 26 and never let go of his pencil.

For Apnée, he was inspired by his latest work: "Under the Sea" and created a pop and graphic print. On the occasion of the release of our collaboration, we joined Lucas in Etretat for a live performance at the top of the cliffs. Breathtaking is the word to describe this moment.
Magnificent, the one to describe the limited edition Apnée x Lucas swimsuit.

What was your first contact with the sea? Do you have a memory with water to tell us?

I was born in Cannes, I spent all my tender childhood on the shores of the Mediterranean.
I spent my days taking a dip and building sand castles.

What place does the ocean hold in your life?

My art allowed me to travel and therefore to taste all the oceans. I have a preference for the Pacific Ocean because I often go to California.
Can you tell us a bit about your beginnings?

I started painting late, without a specific goal, just the desire to clear my head.
Everything happened very quickly and I found myself traveling all over the world to paint.

Where did this fascination for these little characters come from?

Gus Gus is a character that has always been sleeping deep inside me.
It took shape following my trip to Cairo in 2018. This trip was a revelation because it gave birth to my half-man, half-bird character, inspired by hieroglyphics.

Can you describe to us the feeling that animates you when you paint

I literally transform myself, it's visceral.

What does your typical day look like?

All my days are different from each other, it's the life of an artist.

Do you have a little easy gesture for the planet to recommend to our readers?

I pick up everything I see on the ground, it's stronger than me I can't pretend. I often say: "if you see it, it's as if it were yours"
Lucas Beaufort
What are your plans for the future ? Do you have a dream for the planet?

I have plans for gatherings. I'm launching the Art Camp this summer which will bring together artists from all walks of life. We are going to share strong moments under the sign of creativity. My dream for the planet is precisely to bring together artists from all over the world and raise awareness around these small daily gestures.

What are you proud of when you go to bed at night?


And if you had to do it over again, what would you do differently?
