Pepa Prieto was born in Granada Spain and is currently living and working in New York. She holds a MFA in painting from the University Complutense of Madrid, Spain as well as studied Mixed Media at Central St. Martin’s School of Art in London, U.K.

Pepa’s work represents a private world of invented characters and imagined environments. For Pepa, this is the equivalent of a visual diary where she can freely explore the world of relationships and their consequences. In order to do this, she creates circumstances and fictional landscapes that take both the viewer
and the inhabitants of her paintings on challenging and diverse journeys.

The formal aspects of her works are intuitive and are reflected most clearly in the areas that she paints with a playful, lose gesture. She balance’s the compositions in her work by combining these painterly areas with more abstract geometrical forms.  In Pepa’s work, she seeks to create an inner, personal conversation with the hope inspiring reflection on the part of the viewer as well.

Pepa Prieto will be featured at Circuit12 as part of our upcoming exhibition titled SURFACE PATTERN. For more information or to view available works by Pepa, please contact the gallery at 214-760-1212 or via email at
