Lola de Miguel was born and raised in a traditional and conservative Spanish family. Her dynamic spirit and eagerness to learn and grow made her leave the enchanting green scenery of the Pyrenees and go explore the multicultural world.
She was offered scholarships to study art in the USA, but due to pressures from family, she left aside her true passion for creative expression and became a lawyer. An international successful corporate career followed.
Despite professional achievements, her journey towards self discovery continued. The journey took her to live in 6 different countries, different fields and career changes.
But she found the answer when she came to New York. She decided to leap forward and joined the Art Students League. Her mentors Ronnie Landfield, James Little, Larry Poons and Bruce Dorfman encouraged this path.
Since then, there has been no looking back. She has had numerous groups exhibits, has won many blue dot awards, the Leonard Rosenfeld Scholarship 2019 from the Art Students League, is about to complete her 4 years Painting Studies and has had great success in her 6 solo shows in Soho and Midtown, New York
Lola is an enthusiastic ARTIST and a motivational coach. In both arenas, Lola inspires through her energy, courage, passion and colorful way of approaching life.
Lola uses mainly acrylic on canvas. She is very spirited and energetic and likes the fast decision process acrylic painting offers her.
What all her paintings have in common is that they are really powerful and bright. She has a lot of energy and masters color. Her world holistic experiences and brightness comes through her art. She is not afraid to set a mark or change totally style. For Lola art is freedom and it is an expression of her constant evolution as a human being. Her imagination and creativity has led her to explore and use other mediums, including sculpture, drawing and mixed media. Her art evolves like she does but is always breathing color , action and expressionism.
I use gestural application of color and free brush strokes, along with pouring and sometimes with my hands. It is a continuous rhythmic organization of color and movement to transmit emotion and passion. I submerge myself in an exquisite combination of color , texture and luminosity. I have no limitations in translating my emotive intent and vision into the canvas. I am in pursuit of that I feel is essential and larger than me
For me art is a form of free expression. I am prepared to utilize my worldly experiences and knowledge that comes from different cultures and influences.
I paint from my heart and soul
Climate change, Nature, Human kind, The Universe, Equality and Diversity all play important roles in my art. I hope to inspire, heal and bring joy to humanity with my art. Art brings us together and helps us feel connected.
