About Lucky Friday


Lucky Friday is a graphic designer who originates from New Zealand and now residing in the beautiful seaside town of Hermanus, just outside Cape Town. I’ve worked across the globe for some of the largest advertising agencies on the planet as a creative director and now exploring my artistic talents.  I love combining my graphic design skills with my art. The intersection of both forms of art, fascinates me.

I’m inspired by Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Picasso, David Hockney & William Kentridge. In my graphic design career, graffiti art, Bauhaus School of design and deconstruction influenced my career and fortunate to have won numerous international design awards for my graphic design and global advertising campaigns.

You maybe asking why the name “Lucky Friday”?

That’s a good question. It’s more to do with the amazing people I have connected with in Africa. Their names are so simple like “Precious, Lucky, Innocent, Beauty etc.” I chose Lucky Friday to represent my adopted Africanism. Africa is my home now and have embraced it.

I hope you enjoy the art you see and open for commissions. Please follow me on Instagram @luckyfridayartist or use the hashtag #luckyfridayartist
