Artist Pepa Prieto, discloses all her fantasy in a world full of freshness . An oneiric world marked by a naïve, folky touch which shows clearly in her use of the colour palette and the characters represented. This oneiric world she reproduces full of landscapes and imaginary persons are references of her own experiences.
The result is a composition of scenes which form a world of allegories and secret messages.
Her work recalls those adolescent drawings with a simple line but a complicated composition where extravagant inhabitants share the setting with geometric shapes, mountains, urban country sides and figures.
The cohabitation between the animal world and the human one reminds that of children tales.
Her very detailed work, with flat images in a range of colour and textures, has a naÔf touch but also it has a complex, humorous and ironic vision about the deepest human behaviour.
In her work she explores the most profound behaviour of human beings and their interaction with others .
Pepa Prieto is an artist who not only experiments in an unique field of action, she as well utilizes other formats such as installations , illustration, painting , photography.
