We recently got a chance to visit artist Pepa Prieto at her home sudio.
Pepa Prieto, discloses all her fantasy in a world full of freshness . An oneiric world , which shows clearly in her use of the colour palette and the characters represented. A world of strange landscapes and imaginary persons that often reference her own experiences. In her work she seeks to distil or freeze, in a suspended moment, situations that represent the complexity of human relations. The result is a composition of scenes, forming allegories and secret messages.
While the simple lines and complicated compositions of her work recall the tradition of eastern miniature painting, Prieto´s work ventures further by portraying an almost surreal amalgam of extravagant inhabitants that coexist with abstract shapes in urban and natural landscapes.
Her very detailed work, with flat images in a range of colour and textures, has a simple touch but also a complex, humorous and ironic vision about the deepest human behaviour.
Pepa Prieto is an artist who not only experiments in an unique field of action, she also works with other formats such as installations, large scale Murals, sculptures .
Her Art has been commission in major Commercial Projects for Brands such as MTV Networks, Creating the image for an Airbus plane 323.
