Lucy Crump (born 1993, UK) is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in London.
Lucy's painting and collage work draws inspiration from all around, creating platforms of discussion
on current affairs, pop culture and poetry. These influences are channelled through the artists hand
and transcribed into a single expression or series of artwork/s. These elements alongside the
choice of clashing colours, disjointed perspectives and the element of chance merge into a powerful
social commentary, building the artists language of visual poetry.
" I draw inspiration from walking down a dodgy street corner at 1am, overhearing some outrageous
fake news in an english village pub, to a power punching red lipstick with red wine on the corner of
the lips. Nostalgic memories of the beach I visited and got more plastic and glass in my toes than
sand, to the news they don't put in the newspaper. Tipsy conversations about alternative universes
with friends and characterising the persona of a cat at my window who can stare through my very
soul to highlighting an ultra personified party goer who must reveal their moon is in pisces through
to the women statistically oppressed in their industry. Juxtaposed cultures co-inhabiting a time and space and capturing the energy of people who have a dance floor instead of a living room. The melancholy of a mediterranean balcony at sunrise and the surprise of finding a baroque style record in a bargain bin, to an expression or slang word that doesn't translate into another language, to the youth evoking change. A persons choice of possessions when moving countries, to the old lady on the other side of the road in a head to toe velvet suit on the hottest day of the year. “
