Artist Profile

Laura Arenson

London-based Laura is fascinated by capturing humanity in its most poignant, fragile and raw form. She explores the beauty and complexity of the human body and the relationship between the surface layers of flesh, bone, muscles and scars with the emotions and lived experiences that lie beneath. Her wish is that through her art she imbues her subjects with a voice to share their stories in a world they so often otherwise go unheard. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in London, Edinburgh, Paris and Barcelona.

Awards include: 2024 Finalist in the 26th International Portrait Competition at the Portrait Society of America; 2023 Scholarship Award at Figurativas Exhibition Museu Europeu d’Art Modern (MEAM) in Barcelona; 2023 Elected Member of the Society of Graphic Art, 2022 Pastel Society Visitor’s Choice Award.
