Full Name
Lacy Talley
Lacy Talley, a Cleveland-based artist, is known for her colorful eccentric figure based acrylic paintings that capture otherworldly existences with a jovial poise. Her bright, bold palette is complemented by the different perspectives she pushes in her pieces. The artist’s aesthetic choices are intuitive rather than premeditated. Through her gestural brushstrokes, Lacy’s paintings summon a joyful, ordered chaos, emotional response. Her style is nuanced by a range of inspirations, including the properties of crystals and how they relate to the body and impact one's way to regulate thought and emotions. The personal edge that Lacy brings to each painting alters and enhances recognizable subject matter, cultivating an imaginative visual experience. As an Art Director, she has worked with brands such as Spotify, Moet Hennessy, SpikedDDD, Cadillac and more on campaign roll outs, presentation decks, and partnerships. Recently, Lacy has partnered with Maker’s Mark for their Art & Soul Program, highlighting emerging Black Creators making the world remarkable with their vision. She has worked in partnership with the National Basketball Association and the Marcus Graham Project as one of the designers of the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Justice Champion Award as well as the Cleveland Summit location marker that was revealed in the front of the American Cancer Society building on the corner of 105th St & Euclid around Juneteenth last year!
