Our very friend and amazing artist, originally from Colorado and based in California, Lauren YS presented her very first solo show in Mexico City at Gurú Gallery.
From the Bay Area, Lauren work aims to create and populate a misfit wonderland in which imaginary heroines can address the absurdities of the reality in the confines of a page or a wall.
Influences by her dreams, mythology, death, comics, love, sex, psychedelia, animation, nostalgia and her Asian-American heritage, Lauren’s work often geared towards pushing a very oneiric narrative and always has a fantastical aesthetic.
“Brujería”, which means “witchcraft”, is a series of drawings influenced by the colorscapes of the desert, creatures of myth, the occult and personal imaginations. Lauren YS and Gurú Gallery welcome Mexico City warmly to her latest body of work, and also her very first mural in this crazy and magnificent city in Latin America.
