Meet Lara Scolari
Renowned for her distinct 'abstract expressionist' style, Lara Scolari infuses her exuberant energy, passion and joy (with a splash of fun) into her exquisite original artwork.
Irresistibly drawn to the world of art as a child, Lara embarked on her lifelong pursuit by painting a magnificent mural on a wall of her childhood home. Her parents (who gave her the green light for the mural masterpiece) worked within the art and painting industry and were always encouraging her to paint with generosity and volume - a philosophy that informs her art practice today.
Featuring organic forms and fluid shapes, Lara’s stunning works are inspired by memory, meditation, music and the culture and essence of Australia. Captivating and magnetic, each of her paintings tells a story, showcased by a translucent, veiled colour palette that reflects the natural landscape.
Lara's highly sought-after paintings explore multi-layered organic forms, lines, shapes and composition that culminate in artwork that is contemplative and thought-provoking, while at the same time inspirational and joyful. Her use of tonal combinations with rich and luscious colours has been welcomed by many of Australia's leading interior designers, including the multi-award-winning Greg Natale.
Lara’s heart, soul and essence are imbued in the making of art. Almost like meditation, she immerses herself in her creative space every day. Inspired by music, Lara paints with her whole body, embracing energy and movement in her art practice. Capturing her distinct liveliness, passion and joyful spirit, Lara shares these gifts in each of her prints, original artwork and commissions.
From North America across to Europe, Asia and Australia, Lara's award-winning artwork is represented in both public and private collections throughout the world.
“Working with Lara is an absolutely seamless experience. The connection she creates as an artist is profound. You find yourself wanting a part of her joy and you can feel her personality – that joy, kindness and happiness – every time you look at her artwork.”
