Dustin Lyon and Liz Chapman are artists based in Wigan, working collaboratively to produce bespoke artworks and workshops.
Dustin Lyon exhibits his bespoke installations and artwork across the North West of England. Lyon creates large-scale immersive projection mapped installations inspired by cinema, science and the supernatural. Lyon studied Art & Design at College and is a prolific researcher, seeking out and using cutting edge digital technologies to create bespoke works. As a long performing musician, Lyon invests time to create a truly sonically and visually enveloping experience for the audience. Since 2013, Lyon has developed an excellent reputation for his recognisable installations, including the projection mapping of Wigan’s All Saint’s Church, The Museum of Wigan Life, Manchester Museum and Nottingham’s Mayhem Festival. He is currently the lead artist at The Fire Within, a high profile gallery space in the centre of Wigan. Lyon has also been a key collaborator with Arts Organisations and Local Authority for Light Night Wigan & Leigh and various Museums at Night events.
Liz Chapman focusses her artistic practice on biology and natural sciences, along with an interest in heritage and the historical treasures found across the North West of England. Chapman uses mediums such as textiles, illustration, digital technology and recycled materials to record and understand the world around her. Chapman exhibits on a regular basis, more recently taking part in online shows and exhibiting her Fabric Oology Series (nest replication made from recycled materials) in Love is a Rebellious Bird at Wigan’s high profile ‘The Fire Within’. Since 2008, Chapman has developed extensive experience delivering creative participatory workshops with people of all ages. Chapman graduated with an Art History degree and was the lead on the ACE funded D:Circus Project for Wigan Council and Light Night Wigan & Leigh. These projects explored digital creativity through a myriad of enriching innovative experiences and collaborated with artists from across the UK.
