To observe his landscapes is to enter into a world infused with color. In his paintings many forms reside free from boundaries which at a certain point become landscapes. Clouds and landscapes only exist in his imagination and canvases.

His body of work is not ethnic-culture specific nor political in the traditional or overt sense. He values spontenaity above all.

Art and culture from other times and places informs and inspires his nostalgic connection to artists such a Pierre Bonnard, Eugène Boudin and Maurice Louvrier. Impressionism is his muse as his paintings declare.

 

Over thirty years he has consistently painted though rarely exhibited save for small gatherings while living in Paris in the mid 90’s. His most recent show in the U.S. was an invitational exhibition at The Tacoma Art Museum in the spring of 2019.

The Seattle Arts & Culture committee has awarded Lagos an Artist-in-Residence séjour on May 10 - July 9, 2022 at Arts at King Street Station in Seattle, Washington. New works and a rotating retrospective exhibiton detailing his journey as an artist will be on display in his studio space at the King Street Station near Pioneer Square in Seattle.
