Lydia Emily's Details
About Lydia Emily
Lydia Emily is a fine artist, street artist and activist. As the daughter of a civil rights protester, activism runs in her blood. Her activism comes from her life-long desire to bring fire to the people whether the galleries will hold her or not. She makes art because she believes that being in the public eye comes with a profound social responsibility, a duty to stand up and speak out, whether that means blowing the whistle on our country’s treatment of political prisoners or casting a discerning eye at a gutless administration. Her art has the power to cross class, gender and borders. Her work has been featured nationally and worldwide with shows in Milan Italy, Berlin Germany, Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC, and San Fransisco. Lydia Emily currently lives with her two children and private zoo of shelter animals.
