Marta Lapillo. Surrealist Artist

Born in 1988 in Cagliari, Sardinia (IT), Marta Lapillo studied Arts at the Foiso Fois Artistic Liceum in Cagliari.


Whilst studying, Marta was absorbed into surrealism with a passion for the work of Frida Kahlo. In May, 2011 Marta moved from Sardinia to UK where she continued her work into surreal subjects.


Emotional, spontaneous and inspired by human behaviour, her paintings contain elements of life combined with her own visual interpretation of the world.


Marta Lapillo works predominantly with oil paints using-canvas and wood as painting surfaces but she is available for all types of commission and would be happy to discuss your requirements.


At the moment Marta is also working as Ofsted registered Childcarer with an emphasis on the arts encouraging children to use their imaginations and be creative.


"Surrealism is the magic surprise of finding a lion in a wardrobe, where we were sure that we would find shirts" (Frida Kahlo)
