Argentina-born, Barcelona-based painter Peca crafts paintings, drawings, and stop-motion films in which fictional creatures roam and cosmic, surreal scenes unfold. In this exclusive peek inside her sketchbook, this imagery is mixed with typographic elements. And although Peca’s work may seem otherworldly, there’s an introspective, autobiographical quality to these images.
From her studio in Barcelona City, Spain, artist Peca meditates over a series of new oil paintings on panels. Having been an artist since childhood, Peca feels that a new world opened up to her recently when she began meditating. The artist feels that her works are self-portraits, and are ways for her to communicate the encrypted experiences that she experiences in life. Peca’s paintings feature strange spiritual entities- multi-eyed furry creatures made of ‘star stuff’ that bleed strawberry juice, and exhale galaxies. Join us as Peca gives Hi Fructose an exclusive peek into her thoughts about art and life, while sharing a few images of new paintings she has just finished for her debut solo exhibit at La Luz de Jesus gallery in Los Angeles.
