Lula Goce was born in Galicia, Spain. She grew up influenced by the salty coastal air, Barnacles, Drizzle and the beautiful beaches this region of Spain is famous for. At 20 she moved away too Salamanca and graduated in fine arts specializing in painting. She proceeded too take part in competitions and scholarships with emphasis on ephemeral sculptures as well as paintings, both in public spaces, museums and galleries. During this period she discovered the thrill of transplanting her work from the gallery environment onto walls bringing a fresh perspective too a very structured graffiti scene, leaving iconic pieces in the streets and abandoned buildings.

Lula then moved to Barcelona where she studied a PhD as well as a Master in artistic creation at The Fine Art University of Barcelona. Graphic Design at The Pauta Formacio and of Illustration at The Escola de la Dona. Barcelona turned out had a vibrant, thriving, huge underground graffiti scene. Lula became part of art collectives developed in old factories like Hangar, Caminal or La Escocesa in Poblenou. Here she met and became a member of the raw street art collective and proceeded to develop her technic on the streets and walls of Barcelona.

Lula found the direct interaction with spectator that happens when committing a huge street piece to a wall and the muscularity that this technic requires a revelation. There is a dialogue that is established between passers by and residents alike as the piece takes shape and in its finality that alters community spaces and neighborhoods for the better. The fact these pieces become integral to the areas she has created these pieces drives Lula to new heights of artistic endeavor.

Throughout all this time she’s taking been part in urban art festivals around the world like Grenoble Street Art Festival, 501 SeeStreet in NYC, North West Walls, Waterford Walls in Ireland, Memorie Urbane in Italy, Zona Maco in México, Street Art Summer in Hannover, Nasimi Festival in Azerbaijan, Poliniza//Dos in Valencia, Twenty Urban Art in Murcia, Mad Cool Festival in Madrid, Bac in Barcelona, among others. She have also participated in projects in art centres such as the Casa de las Conchas in Salamanca; the Santa Mónica Arts Centre and the CCCB in Barcelona, Matadero in Madrid; MARCO in Monterrey (Mexico); Diego Rivera Museum in Guanajuato (México). And exhibitions in DDR projects Gallery in Long Beach, CA, Inoperable Gallery, Viena. Next Street Gallery in Paris and Street Art Place in Italy.
