Lucy McKenzie works with different mediums from painting to installation and creates environments with references in eclectic sources: from propaganda murals in Eastern Europe to the iconography of the Cold War, 1980s pop music or industrial typography.
Lucy McKenzie studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in Dundee (Scoltland) and she attends the decorative painting school Van Der Kelen – Logelain (2007-2008), where she was awarded their gold medal. Since 2007 she has collaborated with the textile designer Beca Lipscombe in the design company Atelier E.B. Her work is shown internationally, including recent solo exhibitions at The Art Institute of Chicago, Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) and a season of projects at The Artist’s Institute (New York).
