Lucy Sparrow is originally from Bath (UK), and works mainly in felt to create art that evokes delight and emotional responses from nearly everyone who sees it. Her work consists of quirky touches, creating art inspired by everyday household objects and is often created using bright primary colours which appeals to all ages.
However, lurking under the surface of Lucy’s bright and fun art lies a darker side. Whether it’s her felt AK-47s automatic weapons, or even her googly-eyed Prozac pills, her work offers plenty of commentary on the consumer world and the politics of modern life. Where others might see the harsh and ugly side of an object, Lucy will take the same thing and disarms its negative aspects with her mastery of felting technique and the juxtaposition of other quirky creations.
Lucy Sparrow’s ‘Feltism’ has caused quite a stir on the urban art scene and this culminated in 2014 with her fabulously inventive ‘Cornershop’. For the entire month of August, Lucy took over a rundown corner shop in Bethnal Green, East London, and filled it with more than 4000 hand-stitched felt replicas of everyday items that you’d normally find in a local shop. Tins of tomato soup jostled for shelf-space alongside felt cat litter and a freezer-full of felt iced-lollies. The show was an incredible success with visitors from all over the world.
Pieces of Lucy’s art are held in both private and corporate collections throughout the EU and the US.
