ABOUT






My name is Lacy Barry and I'm a multi-faceted artist & designer. I do and have done very many things; from public art installations, interiors, desiginging my own wallpaper to podcasting, illustrations, music videos, editorials, curating group shows and even a tablet game. I am obsessed with beauty, and create vibrant sculptures reminiscent of the fluid and geometric forms and saturated colors found in natural & architectural worlds.

Born in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta in the Canadian wilderness, I have always been inspired by the natural and cultural wonders of my childhood home and the fantastical places experienced on my travels later on in adulthood. Approaching these aspects with preternatural cognition, these memories have always made their way into my artwork.

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t curious and enthralled by channeling my imaginative inner world into my art. I began my art practice at the youngest of ages,   before becoming a contemporary dancer at the age of seven, performing professionally across North America. As a young adult, I apprenticed to my sign-painter father on western film sets. Continuing my childhood love of drawing and painting. I later moved into costume design, fashion, set building and prop styling.
... now installations, illustrations and interiors.

I used my background in the arts to ‘literally’ craft my own, unique, visual language. I work mainly, but not exclusively, with paper, discarded materials and recycled cardboard. I utilize various folding, constructive and coloring techniques to breathe life into materials, often incorporating Solarpunk & Lunarpunk themes with much play, fun and care.

Living and working internationally, I reside in Berlin, Germany.
