A lot people might just know this face as “that kid in the Supreme photo shoots”. But he’s a lot more than that. I literally watched Lucien grow up right before my eyes. His older sister used to work for Staple Design as a Production Designer and he was a wee tyke then. But I could tell by the look in his eyes that he had something special in him. He now attends the prestigious Cooper Union School of Art. An art school so selective, they only choose a handful of students each year…all of them able to attend completely for free.
When we did this project for REDU, I spent some time talking to different artists at different points in their life. Some established and O.G.s. Some on the fringes of the culture. And some, are The New School. Lucien is that. He’s finishing university, full of potential and trying to figure it all out. It’s exciting to see and I’m glad we’ll be able to witness what he could become.
