The work of Lu Mourelle is the result of the emotional baggage of the artist, who since childhood alternates residence between Brazil, where she was born, and Europe. Accustomed early to integrate plural and diverse societies, Lu Mourelle dedicated herself to the world of fashion before fully embracing the Fine Arts. From the studies of painting and from all this experience of life, the representation of women who are different and rich in personality and emotion, characters of atypical and contemporary beauty, is born.
Lu Mourelle counts exhibitions in countries of South America, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Austria and others. Her artworks are in public and private collections in Europe, North and South America, and Asia.
Member of the National Society of Fine Arts of Lisbon, the artist continues her research to formulate compositions of color allied to the original traits and multiple countenances. Lu Mourelle starts from deconstruction to strengthen faces and expression-laden looks. They are idealized and at the same time subjective figures, who transform the experience of the public into the contemplation of the feminine.
The artist was born in Campinas, São Paulo, in 1971. Nowadays she lives in Portugal where has your own gallery. Lu Mourelle Art Gallery is based in Citadel Art District in Cascais.
