More Information

Sara Pope, a contemporary artist, has made a name for herself with her bold and seductive paintings of voluptuous lips. Drawing from her successful career in the fashion industry, where she designed shoes for iconic brands like Paul Smith, as well as her work as a designer and art director for magazines, Sara aims to capture the sensual and seductive power that lips and mouths convey. With a deep interest in questions of beauty, communication, and the notion of perfection, Sara uses her commercial experience as a lens through which to explore these themes.

Starting with a makeup brush and lipstick, Sara paints the models’ lips and, using tricks and techniques of makeup and lighting, begins the process of creating the perfect lips. She asks her models to express different emotions, which she captures photographically and uses as inspiration for her artwork. The painting process involves layering thin oil-diluted paints, blending and smoothing the colors at every stage, sometimes even mixing lipstick into the paint. The result is glossy, perfect, and irresistible, reminiscent of the stylistic slickness of advertising.

Sara’s art has been showcased in numerous solo exhibitions and art fairs across London and internationally, including Next Street Gallery in Paris, The Saatchi Gallery in London, The London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts, and SCOPE Miami. Her work is regularly sold at auction at Bonhams Auction House, and she holds the distinction of being the first British female artist in over 70 years to have a piece of work accepted into the Vatican collection.

Loudos Contemporary is proud to exclusively exhibit Sara Pope’s work in Greece since 2020, offering its guests a rare opportunity to experience the stunning beauty and seductive power of her art.
