Surrealist escape, a look at Lola Gil

Surrealist escape, a look at Lola Gil

Los Angeles based artist Lola Gil is a self-taught surrealist painter. Her works will have you asking questions and wanting more. She fell in love with surreal art from her first exposure to it and was heavily inspired by artists like Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy, and Rene Magritte.  Lola often uses her works as a type of self-therapy.

Her paintings become extensions of her self, like snapshots of dreams long forgotten. She often uses a very subdued and dark pallet of colors yet her works hold much joy and happiness within. Lola also uses a lot of symbolism in her works to describe the emotions and feelings of the charters. This allows for many people to spend an immense amount of time looking for and understanding the meaning behind each painting.

“Throughout my career, I have always been a painter of narrative escapism, with my work evoking personal connections for each individual viewer. Because it is executed in a surreal way, it allows the viewer to create their own story and meaning.” – Lola Gil (
