Lois O'Hara is an artist / designer from Brighton.
She is fascinated by process. Her vibrant, diverse and creative practice takes in design & art direction, printmaking, illustration, site-specific murals, painting and moving image. There is a consistent thread running through her work. "I'm interested in capturing the fluidity of an image in motion," says Lois, and it's this sense of fluidity – combined with her love of process and bold colour combinations that makes her work so recognisable.
Lois’s visual narratives are playful and others say ‘psychedelic’, but on closer inspection you realise they usually have an underlying meaning. Lois has a very positive outlook on life and therefore much of her artwork is positive, influential and powerful. Lois has also worked on many projects that raise awareness of social challenges.
Lois’s eye-catching experiments were certainly getting noticed from very early on. Her ‘Yearning’ (screenprint) appeared in the 2016 Jealous Needs You exhibition which was held at Jealous Studios and The Saatchi Gallery in London, this was all whilst Lois was still studying at University. Her drive, determination and passion is what sets her apart from other artists.
