A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Leila was born in Luxembourg and spent her childhood traveling the world -drawing people she met and collecting things she saw.
Leila has been painting since the age of 12 and further developed her interest in the arts during her high school years by taking painting and live drawing classes, exploring her love for photography and spending her free time at art galleries and museums.
After obtaining her scientist baccalaureate diploma in Luxembourg, Leila decided to pursue her love for art full-time and attended the prestigious University of the Arts in London (UK) at London College of Fashion. Later on, she moved to New York (USA) to attend the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
Aside from painting, Leila is an accomplished actor in film, tv and theatre. More info on her acting career right here: http://www.leilalallali.com
ABOUT MY PROCESS
Leila's work is inspired by her travels, may they be real or imaginary.
Her practice likes to oscillate between the concrete and the abstract, the undefined. Yet certainly with a lot of colour and almost always with a dash of humour.
Leila would like for her work to exist as a counterbalance to the sometimes grim realities of life and make the viewer feel good when looking at her paintings. Ideally, they incite amusement and provoke a little smirk on the viewer's face.
