About the Artist

LENA McCARTHY is a Boston-born painter and international muralist. She first began making street art in Santiago, Chile in 2016. Since then she has not ceased painting walls. Her repertoire ranges from arts centers, to schools, businesses and international mural festivals. Her work can be found across Boston & the Metrowest, in Latin America and most recently, India.

“Public art – street art – has changed my life. I’ve never felt more inspired to put something out into the world as when everyone can see and feel it’s rawness. What a gift to create.”

When not painting big walls, she can be found in her studio, on a yoga mat, or roaming in the great outdoors.
