Launching....BRAND NEW ARTIST To the Gallery
ALEA PINAR DU PRE
Turkish self-taught and internationally acclaimed artist, Alea Pinar Du Pre, portrays vibrant large-scale artworks with a pop art twist.

In my latest series displayed here, named Space / Time, we encounter visions of the ruptures in the impermanent moment. In short, my portraits touch on the nature of individual identity and how we’re coded to try to de-code female beauty and success.
