Lidia de Pedro

posted in: Artist biographies | 0

Lidia de Pedro is originally from Spain and was discovered whilst she was working for a graphic design company in Brighton. With two sell-out shows and several high profile commissions to her name, her work has become highly collected amongst a loyal following. Lidia uses her work as a way to record thoughts and ideas, as well as commenting on recent news and events. Lidia describes her approach as creating a comic strip but within a single frame and without dialogue. Instead she creates the narrative through the layers of images through which the viewer has to navigate their own path. Her flamboyant and colourful compositions have proved popular with her series of prints based on her family already having sold out. Lidia also produced a series of one off prints on Perspex for the Saints and Sinners exhibition in London and had her first solo show in 2009. Lidia is a natural born traveller and loves to move to new cities and indulge in all the cultural differences and fun she encounters. Lidia has a passion for creating images, trying new techniques and experimenting. After completing a degree in Audiovisual Communication in Spain, she worked for 4 years editing video footage, making her way through several creative positions which eventually lead her to her present occupation in graphic design.
