Lorena Levi Painter

My name is Lorena Levi, and my practice is in portraiture and narrative oil painting. In the last year of my MAFA at Edinburgh College of art . I explored unconventional methods of collecting stories mainly through the internet. Using chat room sites to speak to strangers or listening to podcasts of real-life therapy sessions in order to present a narrative scene are two ways in which I gained inspiration for my work. In conjunction with narrative painting, I am also a portrait artist, with an interest in trying to understand and interpret sitter’s inner psyche and their relationship with others in the painting or even me.
Upon graduating I have won the Astaire Prize 2021 and been selected for the RSA New Contemporaries show in 2023
