In 2003 together with some artists friends he initiated “pARTage” an artist led art organisation working for the promotion of contemporary art in Mauritius. He is the leader of the group and is currently working as lecturer at the MGI School of fine arts.
In his works Luchoomun uses traditions, mythologies, religions, politics and modern social behaviors to investigate the relationship between man and his immediate environment expressed through a variety of media including video, installations, photography, performance and painting.
