Behind the Project
Hey there, I’m Lucas Stolz, a graphic artist based in Barcelona. For ten plus years, I’ve been working on design projects where an artistic approach is needed. Through my experience with clients and constant practice, I’ve developed my personal style, heavily using expressive calligraphy and illustration. I develop independent art projects and the sum of these pieces has lead to the creation of an imaginary place that serves as a home to them: Atramento.
Sometimes, people ask where I’m “really” from and the answer is a little complicated. In many ways, I believe that where you’re currently at and what you do means more. Born and partly raised in Switzerland, I’ve also lived in the USA for three years, over a decade in Germany, with a semester in France in between, before landing in Barcelona in 2009. Living and creating in different countries with inspiring people has taught me different approaches to creativity. Like many people with multiple passports, I think my life has made me somewhat of an outsider everywhere, while at the same time giving me the gift of feeling at home in many places.
