More about Lu Mourelle
Lu Mourelle’s work is the result of the emotional baggage of the artist, who since childhood alternates residence between Brazil and Europe. From an early age, she is used to integrating plural and diverse societies. She dedicated herself to the world of fashion before fully embracing the Fine Arts in the early 2000s. From the studies of painting and all this experience of life, in such unique societies, Lu Mourelle absorbs the cultural multiplicity of peoples and ways of expressing themselves, socially and artistically.
The artist continues her research to formulate compositions of color allied to the original traits and multiple countenances. Lu Mourelle starts from deconstruction to strengthen faces and expression-laden looks. They are idealized and at the same time subjective figures, who transform the experience of the public into the contemplation of the feminine.
The artist was born in Campinas, São Paulo, in 1971.
