Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Luke 'Luca' Cockayne

"I have a 1st class degree in Art, Philosophy & Contemporary Practice from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Dundee, and an MFA in Art & Humanities. I have been a writer-in-residence at Stroud Valleys Artspace, and exhibited work in group shows at the Cooper Gallery, Generator Projects, Summerhall, SaltSpace Gallery, Gayfield Creative Spaces, Coburg House Art Studios and other publicly funded and/or artist-run spaces across Scotland.

I have an art studio in Bridgeton, Glasgow, and one of my paintings was featured on Grayson’s Art Club on Channel 4 this spring.

My dream is to have a solo exhibition in a publicly funded art gallery and/or for Tracey Emin to say something nice about my work."
