Liza Moscatelli acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land, the Dharug (Darug) people of the Eora Nation (currently known as Sydney), in which she works, studies and creates on and their Elders past and present. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
Liza was born and raised on Darug land to a Cebuana mother from the Philippines and Italian father from Cairo, Egypt. She is a multidisciplinary artist, research candidate and academic tutor in Social Work at Western Sydney University. She is researching the lived experiences of young people from refugee circumstances who are resettling in Western Sydney. For the past thirteen years, Liza has worked with diverse individuals and communities across the youth, settlement services, disability and child protection sectors.
Liza is also the founder of small creative business Mosca Media Australia with works that span across photography, video, graphic design and illustration, and leverages this by providing young people with training and mentoring based on skill-building and business development. She has documented the Sydney music scene for over a decade, which has given her the privilege to photograph many notable international and local bands and public figures. She is also a regular contributor on Koori Radio 93.7FM’s Puha & Porkbones show.
Liza’s work focuses on centring the voices of those who are underrepresented, and seeks to serve the community on a ‘human’ level with empathy, compassion and authenticity. She is committed to unlearn and re-learn ways of thinking, doing and being, to be a better advocate in a rapidly changing world.
"The beauty of art is that there are no limitations - no right or wrong. There is freedom to express oneself, to tell a story, experiment, imagine the 'impossible', explore new and big ideas and produce transparent, meaningful and appealing work that one can relate to." – Liza
