About

Alea Pinar Du Pre's original mixed media artworks portray human figures in a graphic pop-realist style. An enterprising autodidact merging technology and fine art, her vibrant contemporary pop-figurative artworks colorfully explore the territory between human reality and artificial reality. Her paintings portray the fact that our perceptions of solid reality are deceptively virtual. This unique collage is a part of her "Snapshot" series, as she explains:

"We consist of the same atoms, created billions of years ago in a supernova. And here we are living and breathing and experiencing life, and we think we are all so different. I think we are all the same, it’s just that are masks and poses are different. I love humanity and this game we are playing. With snapshot I am trying to capture the unawareness of the fact that we are the greatest wonder of the universe".

This one-of-a-kind 44 inch tall by 58 inch wide horizontal artwork depicts the portrait of a female figure. Pinar Du Pre's fusion of materials - acrylics, printed elements, and layers of gilt captured under an epoxy lens - represents the layered reality she aims to depict. The sides of this canvas are painted white and it does not require framing. Pinar Du Pre has signed, titled, and dated this original artwork on the back of the canvas.

Free local Los Angeles area delivery and free professional installation in the local Los Angeles area is included, including placement and hardware. Affordable Continental U.S. and worldwide shipping is available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Building on the synthetic intensity of digital art, her figurative style depicts a familiar but warped daily life. Alea Pinar Du Pre has been influenced deeply by the traditional fine art and design practices of Kunstlerhaus and Wiener Werkstaette, two artist societies with roots in Vienna, Austria. Paying tribute to her main influences, Alea describes her style as "Jugendstil Pop-Art". But where Pop art was stimulated by the iconography of materialism and the mass culture of its time, her vision is more intimate in its subversive intent.

Alea Pinar Du Pre lives in Vienna, Austria. Her artworks are exhibited and collected in international hot spots across Europe, Asia, and North America.

Alea Pinar Du Pre

Austrian Turkish painter Alea Pinar Du Pre was born in 1972. She is influenced deeply by the traditional fine art and design practices of Kunstlerhaus and Wiener Werkstaette, two artist societies with roots in Vienna, Austria. Between 1995 and 2005, she produced a series of cubistic oil paintings on wood picturing street scenes of Istanbul. In 2006 she developed her current technique in which she mixes digital art with ‘the real world’, a technique she calls media fusion.

Her technique also involves a fusion of materials, outlooks and diverse inspirations. Building on the synthetic intensity of digital art, her figurative style depicts a familiar but warped daily life. Her choice of materials - acrylics, printed elements, and layers of gilt captured under an epoxy lens - represents another aspect of the layered reality she aims to depict. Paying tribute to her main influences, Alea describes her style as "Jugendstil Pop-Art". But where Pop was stimulated by the iconography of materialism and the mass culture of its time, her vision is more intimate in its subversive intent.
