Lucas Risé was born in 1978 in the city of "25 de Mayo," a Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. During his adolescence, painted street signs began his first incursion into painting. He studied Graphic Design in the Design and Urbanism School of the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
His unique style matured during his travels and experiences in South America, Africa, the United States, and Europe. Painting street signs and murals in Buenos Aires since the age of 12, Risé focuses on art that interacts and transforms from different angles to become a universe of its own.

The heart of the agave plant, which looks like a giant pineapple, is also called "mezcal." In Nahuatl, the word means "the house of the moon" and is used to signify the heart, essence, or center. Mezcal is a product of a two-world encounter: the technique that originated in Europe, transforming an ancient product of the Americas.
