BIOGRAPHY

Sol Felpeto a multicultural artist born in Venezuela. She spent her childhood and adolescence between Buenos Aires-Madrid, sporadically living in other countries with her family. In Argentina she began her studies in veterinary medicine school but after three years she decided to follow her creative drive and studied Fashion and Creative Direction at European Institute of Design (IED).

An illustrator and painter within her own style, a cocktail of pure art, humour and animals, after graduating Felpeto immediately participated in her very first exhibition along with other emerging artists of the generation. Her original veterinary prowess has not been wasted, with the artist anthropologising animals as a key feature of her work.  Felpeto’s work is representative of innovative art that borrows from icons like Basquiat, yes, yet remains distinctive through an unapologetic vessel of unrestrained self-expression. This freedom is cornerstone to the new world of art.

Regarding her current series or work, the artist states, “It is a mixture of art, cartoon and pop culture where apparently restless, foolish and mischievous animals prowl around the canvases. Evil cats or crazy dogs re-enact and make fun of iconic characters, cult movies, world history and whatever scenery they manage to slip through.”

Sol Felpeto’s work has been exhibited in Miami, San Diego, Barcelona, Berlin, Doha and other locations around the globe.
