Graduate Show 2019: Lucia Vinti: Illustration

I really enjoy making work about art, culture, people and places.
Most of my work starts from a place I’ve visited and the things and people that I see there. If I don’t know what to draw then I’ll either visit a museum or draw my friends.

Please tell us about your final year project

I’ve been working on two big projects over the last couple of months. The first is a series of drawings of people at Brighton Station on a Saturday morning and evening. I really enjoyed documenting so many people that just happened to be at the station at the same time as me.

The second project is an interactive children’s book called ’The Looking Book’ which aims to encourage observation and documentation of the world around you, through drawing, writing and photography. It also has pages about artists who do this in their work.

How have you found your course/time at Brighton?

I’ve had an amazing time and I’m very sad to be leaving! I’ve really enjoyed the course and have learnt a lot from it as well as making some great friends.

What are your plans after graduation?

I’m hoping to work as a freelance illustrator – i recently was commissioned to illustrate a family exhibition guide for Van Gogh and Britain at Tate, and I would love to get more work similar to this. Also, to travel and to eventually get a studio space. I really enjoy organising events and running workshops so I hope to keep this up too!
