Lara Buelow is a painter based in San Francisco, CA. Born in Germany, raised in the Bay Area, Lara creates at home and abroad. Her wanderlust has led to a love of sketchbooks and collage, incorporating bits and pieces of her surroundings into her work. Having studied art at Parsons School of Design and graduating with a degree in Geography from Western Washington University in Bellingham, WA, Lara is always seeking to build bridges between the dualities in life. She has embraced the big city of NYC and smaller communities in Washington and New Mexico.
Now her life in San Francisco carries a similar juxtaposition: though living in a dense urban area, she seeks to remain connected to nature through outdoor activities such as cycling and surfing. Lara’s work is an exploration of these duplicitous things that arise in our lives. Using both figures and geometry she creates bright portraits of the intersections of ideas, images and stories.
Lara is currently pursuing residencies, group shows and mural opportunities. Her dream is to paint around the world.
