Based on Kaurna Land / Adelaide South Australia, Lucinda Penn is an emerging artist bringing together visual art and communication design under the name of LCND. She works in the realms of public art, private commissions, digital illustrations, upcycling found objects/canvases into usable/new art, and everywhere in between!
Since breaking onto Adelaide’s public art scene in 2019 on the main street of Stirling, Lucinda has worked with the City of Adelaide Council, Adelaide Central Market, Red Bull, Department for Infrastructure & Transport, Green Adelaide, Amadio Wines, Cry Baby bar, Distill bar, Pop-Up Community Care, Prospect Library, several private residences and more across Adelaide. Some of her latest murals include a 10m tall piece in Ely Place in the south-eastern CBD and South Australia’s first double sided mural in Stirling. Engaging and bringing together communities is at the heart of her practice. Lucinda loves running workshops where she involves diverse members of community in helping bring her public art to life.
Inspired by the everyday world around us, Lucinda is intrigued by using symbolism to narrate meaning. Expression, optimism and perspective underpin her bright and energetic colour palettes. She strives to colourise our streets and homes, and to connect with people through her mantra perspective through design.
