about the artist's works
Creator of human landscapes, Laura Nieto takes painting as a means to make us dream. Her works represent scenes full of life through stunning canvases that take small breaths of self-reference to turn them into a purely aesthetic experience. Pieces from the normality of the social encounter claim those moments in which we return to our humanity in the face of the madness and vertigo of our society. Scenes full of life that you get with the use of graffiti spray and with small spots that together with oil make up everyday scenes, meetings in cafes, breaths of fresh air in the street, the smell of food from a street stall and makes us dream, invites us to get into the scene and catches us.
