Lara Deutz

Artist Biography

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Rotterdam based artist Lara Deutz was raised by fine art painters Alex Meidam and Lynda Deutz. From the moment she can walk and crawl she’s also present in the atelier.

So since Lara is using a pencil, she is making art. Always with passion, between or outside the lines. Inside or outside the box. She’s also making music from a very young age. She started playing the piano at the age of 5 which later evolved into Jazzalara.com. In 2018 Lara picked up her premier passion (art) and brought this to a new level. These days she’s dripping and drawing! Art styles that inspire Lara are abstract expressionism, pop art, and line art. Creativity has always been an essential part of her life and remains an important driving force in her artistic development. But what drives her to create all these pieces of art? Escapism, the desire to escape from reality or routine.

Artist Statement 

Do something different, don’t draw between the lines. Following the rules will take a toll over time. Well, for me it does. That’s why my artworks are produced with the thought “Get out of the comfort zone”. My artworks are inspired by artists like Jackson Pollock, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring.
