I'm Lucy Olcese, an Argentinean-New Zealand artist.

My journey in the creative world has been enriched by my academic background in Visual Arts and Graphic Design.

I consider myself a creative explorer, constantly challenging myself to find new ways of expression. That's why my work incorporates diverse materials and techniques, carefully woven together to nurture profound connections and offer unique experiences through participatory installations, captivating objects, and engaging performances.

Beyond the art studio, my interests include cooking, lighthouse chasing (having visited 86 lighthouses worldwide), hiking in nature, spiritual growth and technology. These activities fuel my curiosity, innovation, and passion for creating meaningful encounters.

I was born in Argentina in 1982. I’m living and working in Auckland, New Zealand since 2015
