A young Romanian writer and artist living in Atlanta, Loli Lucaciu pursues the beauty in life. She is interested in the aesthetic and the creative, from visuals to quality writing. Loli wrote for CNN, Collider, Saporta Report, ArtsATL and Emory News and published articles in several other media platforms. She photographed for Nike, The Atlanta Business Chronicle, The Atlantan, Jezebel Magazine and #weloveATL. Outside of print, her portraiture work was exhibited in the Chase Gallery of the Schwartz Center of Performing Arts, next to artist Ross Rossin’s original work. Loli was assigned to photograph President Jimmy Carter and the pop bands The Shadowboxers and LANY and she interviewed top players in the creative field, from visual artist Fahamu Pecou, to Ellie Goulding's keyboard player, to Grammy-nominated composer Joel Thompson. At 23, she was the youngest member of City of Atlanta’s Task Force for the Arts — at 24, the youngest juror for the 2019 Art on the Atlanta BeltLine public art exhibition, a project supporting one of the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment programs in the country. In 2018 - 19, she served as the Marketing Manager for The Woodruff Arts Center, the third largest arts institution in the country.
When opportunity arises, Loli models. She worked for Aveda, Van Michael Salon, Arby’s, Atlanta Influences Everything and Wahoo Fitness, to name a few.
Loli believes in chance encounters that lead to provocative creative work. She welcomes courageous ideas.
Today we'd like to introduce you to Loli Lucaciu. Loli, can you briefly walk us through your story - how you started and how you got to where you are today. Ever since I was a little kid in Romania, I was always interested in stories, in good visuals, and in media.
