Mireia Serra creates sensuous sculptures showing the beauty of snapshots caught in life which are full of emotions and feelings along the life journey. Her little artworks capture the beauty of moments: A young lady challenged by the adventure of a new trip, a young man pondering about his dreams, a lost girl thinking about different options to know more about herself…Mireia vividly demonstrates how a piece of fine art sculpture could incorporate into our daily life, linking us with art that inspires and triggers us to contemplate about life and relationship. The sculptress aptly concludes her work as creating “Figurative sculptures depicting contemporary everyday scenes. Reflect my inner world thus expressing moods and desires, feelings, joys and concerns stemming from my relationship with the world".
Born in Barcelona in 1973, Mireia Serra aimed to be a sculptor from a young age, but her parents persuaded her to study fashion design instead.
In 1995 she graduated in fashion design and started her professional career as a lingerie designer. In 1998, she dropped her well-paid job because she wanted to expand her creative talent and find happiness in the fine arts arena. She decided to start from zero and go back to her initial ambition of becoming a sculptor.
In some of her present sculptures the presence of elements from the fashion world such as cameras, texture, detailed finishing of the clothes and shoes are apparent.
She graduated in 2002 from the Llotja School of Arts in Barcelona (the same school that took under its wing Antoni Gaudí, Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró), specializing in iron and bronze. Later she took an advanced sculpture portrait course taught by sculptor Jorge Egea at MEAM (Museo European d'Art Modern) in order to master her technique.
This wall-mounted bronze and iron sculpture is 10 inch tall, 10 inch wide, and 1 inch deep. It is easily installed using four built-in concealed metal rings. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable US and international shipping is available.
Serra has been working as a full-time sculptor since 2003. She started to exhibit with galleries throughout Spain and landed her first solo shows and her first international art fair in Madrid in 2013. Since 2016 Mireia Serra has been exhibited in galleries and art fairs in Germany, Austria, France, Luxembourg, Sweden, Belgium, Italy, and Hong Kong.
