About the Artist

Lisa Waup is an artist and curator of Gunditjmara, Torres Strait Islander and Italian heritage, based in southeast Melbourne. Her practice is comprised of printmaking and distinct, mixed-media weaving techniques, including woven sculptures, vessels and body adornment. Weaving is an important medium for Waup, symbolising social and cultural continuity; it is an act of cohesion between the past and present and offers Waup a metaphorical connection to place and kin. Lisa has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally and her work has been collected by many state institutions and private collectors both in Australia and overseas. Lisa was a finalist in 2018, 2017 and 2016 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award’s. In 2019 she was a winner of an award in Victorian Craft Awards and her designs were featured at 2017 Melbourne Fashion Week, and a 2020 was a finalist in the National Indigenous Fashion Award’s. Lisa has exhibited at ACCA, NGV, NMA, Fremantle Art Centre, Art Gallery of South Australia and ReDot Gallery in Singapore.
