Vivian Leila Campillo at Frankfurt Book Fair 2019

Born in Barcelona, Spain, in the 70’s, Vivian Leila Campillo López is a self-trained plastic artist. A literary critic by training, with a degree in English and phD studies in Literature and Cultural Pluralism, and a photographer and fiction writer by profession, she started painting at the end of the 90’s when she came across pop surrealism, a style where she found the narrative potential she was trained to appreciate in literature.

Although never represented by an agent nor exhibited by a gallery she has been painting steadily on demand for two decades.
