Lucas Price aka “Cyclops,” is living proof that street art and fine art don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Before Price’s name was known in gallery circles, the self-taught painter was honing his style on the streets as a member of London’s Burning Candy graffiti crew. His work put him in high demand with collectors, and helped him become one of the few artists with no formal training to ever be admitted into the UK’s prestigious Royal College of Arts MFA painting course.

With a foot in the worlds of both street and fine art, Price’s diverse cultural influences can be seen in his Essentials. Demonstrating a minimalist, yet quietly subversive style, we see a clean prototype ball cap and pants from Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi, with whom Price collaborated on a menswear collection after the two met and shared ideas. A Porter wallet and two pairs of prototype sunglasses round out Price’s low-pro look. To keep track of ideas, Price has a large Moleskine notebook and two writing utensils: a Blackwing 602 pencil and a Uni Shift 1010 mechanical pencil. We see Price also has an affinity for film, carrying with him a Contax T2 35mm camera and Fujifilm Neopan C-41 film. In contrast to most modern creatives, the only piece of tech Price chooses to carry is a straightforward MacBook. And no phone in his pocket either, just a set of keys and vitamin C.
