About Pepa Prieto

Spanish artist Pepa Prieto (b.1974) creates artworks that instantly bring a smile to my face. Although the subtext of her works can sometimes reveal a hint of menace and unease, her bright blocks of colour and intricate patterns display an almost child-like imagination – for the world that is visualised in her work is surely not part of our external reality. To this end, kaleidoscopic pyramids send whispered messages to the sky, adventurous archers traverse dreamscapes, and strange old mountain-figures fill her compositions. She has designed various pieces for commercial clients and has exhibited her work internationally – no doubt spreading a magical sense of enchantment wherever she goes. ( Danica van de Velde)
