About the artist
Karla Pereira is a pop surrealist painter based in Zaragoza, Spain. She self-taught oil painting under the influence of traditional art history canon and she received a BA in History of Art from the University of Valencia in 2016.
Since Pereira started her professional career in 2017, she has exhibited her works in the USA, France, Australia, UK, Japan, Hong Kong, and more, garnering collectors worldwide. Her works reflect the beauty and power of femininity and precious creatures, creating a universe where beauty is exemplified through surreal proportions and dreamlike atmospheres.
Pereira’s oil paintings combine traditional painting methods with novel pop characters, presenting an interesting contrast. Her painting style and iconography are unique, yet they echo the styles of the old masters from the Renaissance, Baroque, and European periods. The two form an interesting juxtaposition, bringing the classical backdrop into contemporary subjects.
