Lucero was born in California in 1953 and is recognized as a leading contemporary sculptor. His clay and mixed media creations reflect the Native American and Pre-Columbian culture he witnessed as a child traveling to New Mexico. Lucero’s sculptures are characterized by surrealistic and painterly qualities, both in their ambiguous shape and hand painted imagery, serving as commentary on the society in which we live.
