Splendour in the Grass is thrilled to welcome Berlin-based Australian artist, animator and award-winning music-video director Lucy Dyson as the festivals 2020 Artist in Residence.

Lucy’s residency with Splendour will include creation of the festival’s 2020 artwork, poster and official lineup announce video and you’ll also be able to see some of her work onsite at the event.

Lucy’s “beautifully detailed, unique and off-beat” (Gotye) collages have been commissioned for album covers and exhibited in major galleries, museums and arts festivals around the world including the National Gallery of Victoria, Brooklyn Museum NY, The Melbourne and Sydney International Film Festivals, The Berlin Music Video Awards, The National Film & Sound Archive, The Australian Centre for the Moving Image and now Splendour in the Grass.

A prolific artist, to date, she has directed and produced over fifty music videos. In 2016 she was commissioned to create animations for Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour (yes, Queen Bey!). Other artists she has worked with include Grammy awarded musicians Gotye and Ray LaMontange, as well as Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Courtney Barnett, Sarah Blasko, Kate Miller-Heidke, Bernard Fanning, Paul Kelly and many others.

In the world of fashion Lucy has recently collaborated with Nike, classic UK brand Paul Smith, international luxury fashion house Hermés of Paris and was also recently profiled in Vogue Germany.

Lucy’s unique work includes images from vintage magazines, photographs, children’s books, journals and more, and inspires a warm sense of nostalgia. We couldn’t be more excited to showcase her work to our Splendour in the Grass community this year!
