The Depot Artspace is thrilled to host local graphic designer Lucie Blaze on the Feature Wall. She operates her own brand called Lucie Blaze under which she creates original skateboards focused on female skateboarders. Her recent collection is called Born to Create which celebrates inspirational females all around the world. She currently runs an exhibition across Auckland (the Pullman Hotel, Studio One Toi Tū, Depot Artspace) under the same name, Born to Create, where she explores a digital and hand-embellished collages on canvas and skateboards.
This collection is a celebration of females; specifically putting a spotlight on our local heroines but also worldwide ones. I would like to present these amazing women to inspire communities and youths and to show that you don't have to be famous in order to make a difference in the world around you.
Lucie explains; ‘‘no matter how long I’ve known them or where they are from, each of these women has inspired me in their own way. They all possess different talents and spread different vibes, and each and every one can be inspiration to you as well. All these women do good in our society by sharing their skills, experiences and knowledge. By doing so, they’re changing our communities and inspiring youths to grow and develop themselves and help others“.
When: 8th July – 5th August, 2019 (all welcome)
