Julia Cota's Work



International Handicfraft Fair at Parque das Nações, Lisbon

Julia Cota doesn't look like an eccentric artist at all, she's a very nice humble woman from a village in northern Portugal. I wonder where she gets her inspiration from in order to create such 'hallucinated' figures. This is not kitsch, this is not naïf, this is just crazy and I love it! :-)

What fun, what exuberance, what colour. One can never judge a person from the exterior they show to the world.

Love the colors and funky designs, but the figures' eyes creep me out. I'd be scared to have any in my bedroom.
