Street-art aficionados will be familiar with Parisian born artist, Lucy Lucy. The Melbourne resident came to fame here as part of the Awol crew, collaborating with street-art royalty Adnate and the likes.

Her art is vivid and bold. Her imagery is bursting with colour and intensity. She moves between large-scale public murals, tribal ornaments, textiles and bespoke fashion.

Art came alive at her recent sold out solo exhibition, Elle. Models mimicking the representation of the universal feminine archetypes on the canvas walked amongst the gallery patrons.

We glimpsed the many facets of feminine identity. Each persona, culture and story was enmeshed and intertwined to accentuate the figure they represent: strength, grace, and beauty embodied.

Lucy’s work attempts to capture the evolving folklore of the feminine, exploring the diversity and boundaries of heritage.

Whether a sovereign queen, a mystic sorceress, a youthful muse, or a charismatic lady, they all share in the art and privilege of being a woman.
