Lucy Sparrow Biography

Lucy Sparrow

Contemporary British artist Lucy Sparrow works at the intersection of fine art and craft, incorporating textiles into her sculptural installations. Her felt art is a modern (and often adorable) take on Pop Art portrayals of beloved consumer goods.

Sparrow’s first solo show, ‘Imitation’, at Hoxton Gallery, saw her recreate iconic artworks, such as Damien Hirst’s shark in formaldehyde, out of felt. Since then, she has gone on to fill chemists, delicatessens, and bodegas across the world with her fluffy products.

In 2022, Sparrow exhibited ‘Tampa Fresh Foods’ – an entire supermarket stocked with felt sculptures in Florida, and recreated English tea party favourites in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Big Lunch.
