Pop surrealist painter Karla Pereira is known for her doll-like female characters. Her work reflects the beauty and power of femininity and precious creatures, creating a universe where beauty is exemplified through surreal proportions and dreamlike atmospheres.
Her oil paintings combine traditional painting methods with novel pop characters, presenting an interesting contrast in her works. Her characters are inspired by the Blythe dolls, a fashion doll with an oversized head and large eyes. Her painting style and iconography are unique yet recall the old masters of the Renaissance, Baroque, and European periods. The two form an interesting juxtaposition, bringing the classical world into contemporary subjects.
Born in Zaragoza, Spain. Pereira received a BA in History of Art in 2012 from the University of Valencia. She started self-taught oil painting under the influence of traditional art history canon, and she currently lives and works in Zaragoza.
