Alea Pinar Du Pre's original mixed media artworks portray human figures in a graphic pop-realist style. An enterprising autodidact merging technology and fine art, her contemporary artworks colorfully explore the territory between human and artificial reality. This unique textured painting is a part of her "Space/Time" series, in which figures are deconstructed through layers of vibrant colors.

Alea Pinar Du Pre has been influenced deeply by the traditional fine art and design practices of Kunstlerhaus and Wiener Werkstaette, two artist societies with roots in Vienna, Austria. Paying tribute to her main influences, Alea describes her style as "Jugendstil Pop-Art". But where Pop art was stimulated by the iconography of materialism and the mass culture of its time, her vision is more intimate in its subversive intent.
Alea Pinar Du Pre lives in Vienna, Austria. Her artworks are exhibited and collected in international hot spots across Europe, Asia, and North America.
