Luciana Smith is a Sydney based artist, with a
background in photography, film, painting and
graphic design. She received a Bachelor of
Arts/Fine Arts at UNSW Art & Design in 2015
and since graduating has exhibited in a
number of shows and was selected as a finalist
in the 2017 and 2018 Waverley Art Prize.
Working with acrylic paint on canvas and
painting from photographs taken on her phone,
Luciana reanimates her surroundings with bold
colour as a means of examining the every day. Her most recent body of work was developed at CURA Art Lab in Santa Croce, Florence and explored how urban landscapes are shaped over time and reflect
the lived experience of people.
