John Luchett was born in Hambouldt, Tennessee, in 1951. Luckett works predominantly in the medium of painting, but has amassed a body of work that includes assemblage, drawing, sculpture and photography.
After completing undergraduate studies at Vanderbilt University, Luckett attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco.
Concurrent with his career in graphic design and at direction in Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles, Luckett began his art career in 1997, with a solo showing at Friday the Thirteenth Gallery in San Francisco, which primarily features outsider artists, and his work continues to source this movement. In His abstract work, which forms the core of his practice, his bold use of primary colors, organic forms and geometric shapes combine to construct kinetic explosions of color to establish an upbeat and lively mood, projecting a natural sense of optimism and joy. Lucketts personal body of work reveals a quieter, more contemplative side, exploring various subject matter to create thoughtful reflections on contemporary existence.
His work is included in prublic and private art collections in the United States, Europe and Asia.
Since the late '90's, Luckett has had several solo gallary showings, including "a handful of sky" with BoxOffice/Boxo Projects in New York (2009) adn " African Melody" at True World Gallary in Joshua Tree (2010). Numerous group showings have included "Classic Modernism" at Colin Fisher Studios in Palm Springs (2016) "Active Resistance" at Art Queen Gallary in Joshua Tree (2016), the contemporary "Loop Show" in Los Angeles (2011), "Out There" at Gallary 825 in Los Angeles (2013), "Noah Purifoy: A Tribute" at the 29 Palm Art Gallery (2008), and "Strange Ranger" at Circus Gallary in Los Angeles (2008)
