Birmingham, Englands’ Lucy McLauchlin carries the patterns and textures of natural forms in her mind and her paint brushes wherever she goes. In this new mural on a pebbledash wall in London, her ongoing fascination for the organic again intercedes the spirit of graphic geometry.
“I tend to approach a wall by firstly understanding it’s situation within its surrounding area,” she tells us, “this leads my painting so it’s more of a collaboration in a sense.” Working in context is still uncommon in the street art milieu, although some profess to create work with the local culture firmly in mind. For McLauchlin, it’s an intuitive process.
“In this case I allow a spontaneous approach to guide my brush marks as they grow across the surface,” she says.
