Layla Vladi was born and raised in Lübeck, Germany by a creative family who encouraged her to explore her artistic talent from an early age. Throughout her formative years, Layla excelled in art classes and participated in several art exhibits. Her family moved from place to place often when she was young, which did not allow for lasting friendships and as a result her childhood was a largely solitary one. Layla would later credit the instability in her early life with the birth of her artistic identity, finally settling in California to pursue a career in Art. As a young adult she sought a more serious outlet for her talent.
Since 2015, she has devoted herself to the pursuit of art, specializing in the creation of large scale paintings. Layla's artistic practice draws on mythology and historical storytelling traditions, her narratives are thoughtful explorations that chronicles loss, change, and learning. Her work is often loaded with detail, and yet her brushwork can be loose to give breath and movement to each scene. Layla’s art reanimates historical & traditional genres combining multiple modern techniques to create her own unique approach to painting. Mostly known for her images of figures that emerge from our dreams, her works have been described as melancholic fused with the natural environment be it static or moving. Leaving enough room for others to experience their reality while also having the option to connect to hers.
My theme for this piece is how humanity perceives dreams. Sometimes they are fun and happy feelings because life isn’t all good but it isn’t all bad either. We need to feel everything and embrace it as a part of this fragile beautiful life we have. Are we color blind? Or do the vibrant and the muted colors seamlessly combine? I want my work to connect to all the people that meet between dreams and reality.
