Sarah Lucas (1962– ) is a multidisciplinary visual artist and sculptor known for her humour, visual puns and uncompromising exploration of gender, sexuality and language. She was born in North London to working class parents and grew up either playing on the street with boys, or making things to keep herself amused. At 16, she left school and hitchhiked around Europe before deciding to go to art school, enrolling at the London College of Printmaking in 1983.
