Lea Marcaccini is a French/Italian mixed media artist, working with photography, drawing & collage. Born and raised in a nature reserve on the Pacific coast of Mexico, she has been surrounded and inspired by the diverse and rich culture it has to offer. From pre-Hispanic art and Mythology, to vivacious colors, spirituality, to its vast flora & fauna. Such themes are gently conveyed into her work, indulging in both the friction and synergy of color, used as a form of communication.
Lea likes to explore the study of bringing the subconscious to the conscious, otherworldly dimensions and what the naked eye cannot see. Through self-portraiture, Lea plays with the connections between feminine sensuality, mysticism and natural forces. She invites the viewer to explore the unknown within through play of dreamscape and internal exploration.
Lea has shown her work in numerous group shows in the UK, Paris & Los Angeles, as well as displayed in the Drake hotel in Toronto. Her work has also featured in publications such as British Vogue, Vogue Mexico, So It Goes, Based Instabul & Ingenue Magazine.
