A salsa or jive — each flick of the spray can dances with the music’s beat as France’s Lucy Lucy transforms dull walls globally.  She is now in Frankston as part of the Big Picture Fest. 

Soon after moving to Melbourne in 2006 to complete a master degree in commerce, Lucy connected with street art group AWOL Crew, learning the art at age 21 in laneways.

Upon arriving back in Paris, she kept the “spirit alive”, exhibiting solo for the first time in 2008 before settling back in Melbourne in 2012. Since this time, she has exhibited in the US, Canada, UK, France, Thailand and Australia. “It has been a steady and unplanned journey,” she says. 

“I focused on what I want to tell to people through my paintings as they were viewed by more and more people. I was always trying to improve technically by expanding my practice to performance art, masks and garment making.”

Lucy’s self-described illustrative style reincarnates the soul of women in intricate detail, showing glimpses of different sides to femininity, from grace to beauty. 

With her headphones on, the music becomes the soundtrack to her art, providing direction to each story that is told. “Music is very important and I never paint without it. It really helps in the creative process. I dance a lot on my own in my studio in between paint strokes. I love it and only my cat can see me.”

Her career highlights have included two solo exhibitions at Melbourne’s Juddy Roller and Besser Space, where her arts mixed with performance in the form of attendees wearing masks. 

Incidentally, a wall containing art by AWOL Crew has been set aside for Lucy Lucy in the upcoming Big Picture Fest, which will see her translate the themes of dreamscapes and lucid dreaming into something mystical. 

“In French we say ‘carte blanche’; in other words, we have freedom to create. I am very excited to be involved in the Big Picture Festival. I really like the buzz it’s creating.”

Lucy Lucy is set to cast her spell on the festival within a hot line-up of artists between March 22-24.

Steph shows off the Peninsula lifestyle

Steph shows off the Peninsula lifestyle. Stephanie Leonard (née Bray) started her Instagram page @peninsula.lifestyle in 2015. It began as a marketing strategy for the real estate agency she was working for at the time. Now it’s transformed into a creative outlet for Steph to share her writing and photography while engaging her local community and prospective visitors. It was Steph’s stylish, engaging, and relatable content that saw her page quickly grow. Kate Sears speaks to Steph about how it’s grown to have an amazing community and highlight the paradise that is the Peninsula.
