Lizi Sánchez (b. 1975 Lima, Peru) lives and works in London. In 2007, she graduated with an MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths.

Group exhibitions include: Full Circle, Drawing Room, offsite exhibition at UBM (2014); In(habitat), Lion&Lamb Gallery, London (2014); The Knight Turns its Head and Laughs, Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Greenwich University, London (2011); Utopia Ltd., Highlanes, Gallery, Drogheda, Ireland (2011); Proteo, Nettie Horn, London (2011); Sophisticated Boom Boom (in B&W), Domobaal, London (2010); Once Removed, Unit2 Gallery, London (2008); and Curating Zero Degree Archive, Spike Island, Bristol (2005).
