Lisa Lapointe


Sydney-based artist Lisa Lapointe draws upon spiritual, religious and indigenous mythology in her art. She describes her drawings as “chaotic yet serene”. They combine the primitive with the futuristic through bold colours, strong graphic elements and mythological references.

“Lisa’s original artworks are done in pencil and her applied art has that hand-drawn quality, too. I love their graphic strength and the colours, and her use of spiritual symbolism.” David Clark Design curator & editor
