Lisa Waup

Lisa Waup is a mixed-cultural First Peoples multidisciplinary artist and curator born in Naarm (Melbourne).


Waup’s practice spans diverse media, including weaving, printmaking, photography, sculpture, fashion and digital art. Through strong connections to symbology and materiality, her work connects her to family, Country, history and story, exploring personal experiences and a broader historical narrative. Her work eloquently illustrates her life’s journey through connection, highlighting the importance of tracing lost history, ancestral relationships, Country, motherhood, and time, which ultimately are woven into stories of her past, present and future into contemporary forms.


Lisa has recently completed a Master of Contemporary Art degree from the Victorian College of the Arts where she focused mainly on experimental printmaking techniques.
