Lucie Flynn is a contemporary artist who has moved into creating large scale paintings on the streets, her work is instantly recognisable and stands out loud and proud - be it on a gallery wall or the streets of East London. Nothing comes close to her dynamic style and the path in which she practices her form. Using combinations of spray paint, acrylic, inks and collage Flynn builds bright, clashing palettes with bold sweeps and splatters, layers of paint pulse and crackle.
After attending Reigate School of Art she began her art career producing and exhibiting work on the top floor of The Dragon, Shoreditch when the area was a hotspot for creatives who are now household names, i.e.: Jake and Dinos Chapman, Scott King, Ben Eine and Banksy. Around this time, Flynn was scouted to work in the production and management team at Damien Hirst’s studio and alongside him on international exhibitions and his personal art collection.
Lucie continues to push the boundaries of what is expected of a gallery artist - mixing things up with her street style that is undeniably unique and would be hard to compare. I am so Busy, the artist’s first solo exhibition at This Way Up Gallery, Shoreditch (2000), was a sell-out. Numerous galleries have gone on to exhibit her work, recently including three group shows: Up at Jealous Gallery, Shoreditch (2020), Yes at Gallery 46, Whitechapel (2021), and She/Her/Hers at Oakland Gallery, Liverpool (2022) and most recently her first solo show in central London at The Union, Soho named Be An Exceptional Woman.
