Lucinda Penn (LCND) is an emerging artist based in Adelaide on Kaurna Land exploring everyday shared human experiences and feelings. Her visual language is made up of symbolic objects manipulated by contrasting colours in an amalgamation of art and design. Lucinda intends for her intertwining compositions to be viewed in different sequences by each individual and for meaning to be sparked from their own experiences and predispositions.
Lucinda works in the realms of large scale murals, to digital illustrations, to up-cycling found canvases with leftover mural paint, and everywhere in between. Lucinda’s murals are often site specific, telling the story of the place. Her tallest painted mural is 10m and longest 60m, with a recent printed vinyl piece spanning over 400m on the hoarding of the Adelaide Festival Tower development. Some of her clients include WOTSO Workspace, Adelaide Airport, 23RT ST Distillery, Red Bull, Two Hands Wines and Walker Corporation.
Bringing together communities is at the heart of her practice as she engages the public in her mural painting process wherever possible. Lucinda sees each wall or canvas as a design challenge waiting to be solved and loves to combine her top two passions of art and travel in her work.
