Lucy Weir (She, Her, Hers). A queer artist from London currently based in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia) living on the land of the wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation.
Lucy's primary art form is stencil and spray paint, focusing mostly on her love of queer culture and portraiture.
"I am extremely inspired by queer artistic expression. The queer community is often known for its resilience and unapologetic authenticity. Our community has shaped my existence in so many ways and has opened my eyes to many different forms of expressive art. Societal “norms” are left behind, you are encouraged to live your truth, push boundaries and protect each other against the judgment of others. I am inspired to remember those who played pivotal roles in the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights that allow us to be where we are, and who we are today. It is so important to acknowledge and celebrate our history so it can live on and be admired for future generations, which is why I so often choose to represent queer icons in my paintings."
