Serving up fresh Asian street food in a hip art haven by day and a playful den by night, Foxy Luu’s has an awesome crew – curated by artist Julia Dvorak.

Born in the Ruhr area in Germany, Julia publishes her art under the name Dvorart. ‘I am also the floor manager at Foxy Luu’s which means I am taking care of the Foxy Crew and general operations.’

‘Ever since I started working I enjoyed careers that enabled me to interact with people. At Foxy Luu’s I get to work with an awesome crew as well as interact with our lovely customers who are a colourful bunch of locals, expats and international travellers.’

Julia says Foxy Luu’s customers love their fresh and healthy food and the relaxed and fun atmosphere.

Julia says that COVID presented an opportunity for her personally to dive deeper into her art. ‘I picked up flowtoys as a new passion. It was beautiful to see that even in the craziest and most unusual times a huge number of locals kept on supporting our business by coming in to get takeaways and have a quick uplifting chat.’

‘Seeing how busy Byron has become over the past month almost makes it seem as if things are returning to “normal” in the region.’

Julia says her hope for the near future is that some of the small businesses which have gone under will recover, and that people will be encouraged to go for stay-cations in their local areas, and that they will be buying locally – especially with Christmas coming up.

As well as awesome food, Foxy Luu’s has been hosting an exhibition of art by different local artists.

‘I love that Foxy’s owner Utku is creating a space bringing together good food, locals and their passions and am very grateful he has asked me to exhibit my artworks next.

‘Our exhibition is currently featuring beautiful pieces created by a group of Steiner school students, which are totally worth seeing! My exhibition will start on my birthday, 17 October, and I hope to get to see some local faces popping in and having a look and a chat.

‘My creations are inspired by Mother Earth, humanity, and the symbiosis and sometimes dysfunction in which they exist, as well as the meeting point of the physical and metaphysical world.’

Julia says the crew at Foxy Luu’s are excited to see what the future holds. ‘We hope to bring back live music events when the restrictions have eased, and we are looking forward to hosting more local artists on our feature wall.’
