About

Mireia Serra creates vividly intimate sculptures showing the beauty of snapshots caught in daily life; full of emotions and feelings along the life journey. Her small scale artworks cast in bronze and iron capture the beauty of moments: a young woman challenged by the adventure of a new trip, a young man pondering about his dreams, or a lost girl thinking about different options to know more about herself. Serra demonstrates with grace how a fine art sculpture can incorporate daily life, linking us with art that inspires and triggers us to contemplate life, relationships, and choices.

This bronze sculpture is 5 inches tall by 16 inches wide and 7 inches deep. The white titanium pigment patina covering the solid bronze sculpture provides a natural coating with turquoise-blue patina peeking through in order to give the illusion of the surroundings of the sea. This effect caused by the reaction of bronze to nature provides a randomly marbled appearance. This is the second cast edition of the series and is displayed on a black platform. It is easily displayed on any flat surface. A certificate of authenticity is included. Convenient local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and international shipping is available.

Born in Barcelona in 1973, Mireia Serra aimed to be a sculptor from a young age, but her parents persuaded her to study fashion design instead. In some of her present sculptures, the presence of elements from the fashion world such as cameras, unique textures, and detailed finishing of clothing and shoes are apparent.

In 1995 she graduated in fashion design and started her professional career as a lingerie designer. In 1998, she dropped her well-paid job because she wanted to expand her creative talent and find happiness in the fine arts. She decided to start from zero and go back to her initial ambition of becoming a sculptor. She graduated in 2002 from the Llotja School of Arts in Barcelona (the same school that took under its wing notable artists such as Antoni Gaudí, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró), specializing in iron and bronze. Later she took an advanced sculpture portrait course taught by sculptor Jorge Egea at MEAM (Museo European d'Art Modern) in order to master her technique.

Serra has been working as a full-time sculptor since 2003. She started to exhibit with galleries throughout Spain and landed her first solo shows and her first international art fair in Madrid in 2013. Since 2016 Mireia Serra has been exhibited in galleries and art fairs in Germany, Austria, France, Luxembourg, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, and Hong Kong.
