Biography

born 1970 in Barcelona
lives and works in Barcelona, Spain

Pere Llobera’s paintings resemble volatile evocations of possible worlds. The works are like scenes taken from a narrative, fragments in a film or a detective story. Often, they combine various layers and types of visual information. The painterly style is atmospheric, moody; a sleek unevenness suggests that everything can change at any moment; this mercurial aspect is important.
Llobera is interested in the state of the world, he makes art in response to political issues, and takes his inspiration from many artists. He favours a humoristic approach to the unexpected, for example he made a painting of one of his own works, that was hung behind a door because his friend’s wife did not favour it. Sometimes he collaborates with other artists.

Pere Llobera’s paintings were included in a recent solo exhibition in Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, The Netherlands (2019) and at BONBON Projects in Barcelona (2018). During the exhibition in Museum Voorlinden, Llobera was awarded the Sacha Tanja Award 2019.
