In Conversation With Lauryn Creamer Nwadike

In Conversation With Lauryn Creamer Nwadike written by Sarah CK All Rights Reserved © Void Magazine Sarah CK

Lauryn Creamer Nwadike, who also goes by ‘Mischiiif’, is a multidisciplinary artist, currently beginning her final year in NCAD studying Textiles; however, she has already made some major steps in her artistic career. Lauryn and I spoke about individual inspirations and how these cultivate artistic expression.

Her journey towards being an artist began as a child but was cultivated by a secondary school teacher, who once described Lauryn as an indigo child. A special connection that pushed Lauryn to choose her passion as a career, Lauryn’s artwork still hangs on the classroom walls years later.

Her process is spiritual and unapologetic; she believes in complete expression of self, honesty being a significant part of her work. She allows herself to constantly metamorphize, shed skin, and learn new and adaptable skills. From poetry to film to paint.

Focusing on Lauryn’s recent paintings, she tells me about a commissioned piece entitled ‘For Claire’ that portrays the deep blue Hindu goddess Kali.’ With a necklace of skulls and a head in hand. Kali is traditionally a symbol of death but is also associated with sexuality. Lauryn paints Kali as an ode to femininity and the power it holds. Lauryn hoped to instil that same strength in its new owner.

Another painting by Lauryn entitled ‘I got a bullet (with your name on the f*cking tip)’. Portrays a figure squatting, boots on, legs open. The background of this piece is as eclectic as the artist. Lauryn described the process of this particular piece as ‘attacking the canvas’ Mixed media brings the figure forward, another ode to a deep and honest power.

If you would like to see more of Lauryn’s work, whether it be textiles, fine art, poetry, or video works, you can find it all on her Instagram @mischiiif
