Lucy Costelloe is a British artist born in London practicing in Barcelona. Raised in an artistic family she spent her adolescent years sitting for paintings for and assisting her grandfather, late painter Lucian Freud. After studying Art History at Oxford University, Lucy worked producing artist multiples for artists including Grayson Perry and Yinka Shonibare, as well as studying Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins in association with the Hato Press and drawing practice at the Royal Drawing School. She was a founding member of the Twelve Around One gallery team in London and helped assist with several of their exhibitions.
Her work is philosophical in nature and uses abstracted graphic shapes, resin sculpture, photography and drawing to explore questions about the nature of knowledge and truth. Since moving to Barcelona in 2015 she has been tutored by noted artists Marc Larré and Luis Guerra. She has exhibited in several Barcelona galleries including: Ángels Barcelona, the then Passatge Studio and Untitled BCN. She is also a founding member of Pujó Studios, a contemporary art space based in L’Hospitalet.
