Lester has a unique perspective on the world which can’t help but shine through in his art. His uncomplicated line drawings are full of wit and insight, often making you laugh through revealing a truth presented in a new way.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that a meeting with Lester is just as memorable, fun and thought provoking as his art.
It was his father Wesley who first recognised the early potential in Lester’s work. By chance he saw a TV show where an artist was emphasizing the importance of keeping a child’s-eye perspective. It’s this clarity of vision which characterizes Lester’s drawing, and that’s what inspired his father to help share Lester’s talent with the world.
Since then Lester’s pieces have been exhibited at Tate Modern, The Lowry and Dragon’s Bar in Shoreditch, along with exposure on TV in the UK and abroad. Lester has his own website too – www.lestermagoogan.co.uk
As Spike Milligan observed: “Lester’s drawings show his keen sense of humour – his minimalist approach goes to show that less is more”.
