Art in times of uncertainty

Today’s art must necessarily grapple with a hostile reality which has, in the blink of an eye, invaded our social consciousness and further deepened our reliance on mass media. This reality is…


“The imaginary of Karla De Lara has something naive, romantic and melancholic. Its objects are like small playful, thematic universes, conceived to imbue those who inhabit them in a particular mood”.

María Eugenia Sevilla Hábitat Magazine

“One of Karla de Lara’s most evident qualities is her transparency. Those of us who see the artist and her paintings from afar are perfectly able to fathom her thought processes. We perceive them in the rhythmic movement of her fingers which, with the energy of a piano concerto, produce music in the interplay of colors which seamlessly interweave lines and featherings”.

Salvador Rueda Smithers Director of the National Museum of History

“To see the work of Karla de Lara is a balm of freshness and creativity at a time when the country is going through many severe crises and needs to believe in himself”.

Alejandro Colunga Artist

“Of each piece seems to emanate a spirit of its own ... welcome to a world where colors take us directly to that place where love is palpable and ethereal”.

Expressions Magazine American Express

“Through a new pictorial genre known as hyperrealistic pop art,’ Karla de Lara took her work to the international stage. Uncertainty, innocence, and essence are the themes she has focused on here... Karla de Lara’s work thus constitutes what, in my opinion, one could define as the pathways of the soul”.

“Andy Warhol, a well-known proponent of the pop art movement, posed the question: ‘Isn’t life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?’ This is precisely the effect that Karla de Lara achieves in her pieces, by colorfully and boldly redefining icons from popular culture”.

Luis Tellez Kuensler President of the Mexican Stock Exchange (BMV)

“The work of Karla de Lara is an expression of genuine character, which becomes an energetic pulsation of technique and gesticulated color”.

Habitare Il Tempo Magazine

“The rise of Karla de Lara’s art career has been meteoric, having amazed diehards and newcomers alike. Through her art, she unequivocally demonstrates how hard work, dedication, talent and imagination are the foundations of success”.
