De Cunha - Artist - Manchester, UK

Lisa De Cunha

Manchester, UK


I graduated from university with a degree in visual arts in 2012 ready to achieve a successful career in the design department of the film or television industries.

I have gained transferable skills and valuable experience working with various companies in a number of positions. In all roles I have applied myself creatively and with innovation to gain as much as possible from all opportunities.

I am a passionate and driven worker who works well in a fast paced environment. I am very reliable and ambitious with a diverse interest across television, film and theatre design.




My main practise as an artist is painting but i have also experimented with photography, body painting, print and sculpture. I have a very creative imagination and am always looking for new projects. I have recently been involved with interior design by creating wall art for bedrooms etc. Have a look at my portfolio to see my most current work as an artist. For all my past work and styles check out my links to my website and Facebook page. My work is focused on the nude but I am always open to any new projects across any style or medium. I am a workaholic and most often will take on any task big or small so please contact me if you think you could use my skills.

Borderline Vultures

A promenade show that I was invited to work on doing set and prop making. The theme was based on a company 'syntech solutions' where the staff were being controlled by the 'machine'. There were a number of science labs and other various exciting rooms that would lead you further into the warehouse until you become one of the workers.

Print Making

A process I have become fascinated with in the last year. The blueprint technique has allowed me to capture my entire body as naturally as possible. Similar with the Lumen prints I have used natural light to project my body onto the paper. The final images are monoprints where I have captured the movement of my body with ink.

Body Painting

Here are a selection of images from various body painting projects starting from most recent to oldest. I really enjoy using the body as a canvas, theres something about the skin tone that adds to the depth of the colour. I starting with standard body paint and then moved on to acrylic and poster paint to intensify the colours. The final project became more of a performance itself as I took a step back and let the body play its role

Nude in watercolour 2010

Here are some of the watercolour nudes I began working on in 2012. I became fascinated with the nude and have since continued to use it as a main subject matter. I have selected 4 of many I created using watercolours and indian ink.
