As of 2014 I’m no longer updating this site, but you can still find me on Twitter.

Hi there Jon,
I thought you might be interested in spanish artist Lidia de Pedro’s upcoming first solo show “Motel Déjà Vu: We’ve All Seen” at artrepublic Soho from Nov. 10 to Dec. 3.
Lidia de Pedro hails from Madrid and used to be a graphic designer. She now has a strong UK and Spanish following as an artist with two previous sell-out shows and a presence at the International Art Fair and the Affordable Art Fair. Her works contain intricate narratives painted with acrylics, watercolors, ink, glass paint and varnish.
In an experimental fashion, “Motel Déjà Vu: We’ve All Seen” will feature a series of soundscapes that accompany each of Lidia’s 12 pieces, bestowing them with individual soundtracks.
Singer and songwriter Katie Cruel, who used to perform with We Fell To Earth and Queens of the Stone Age and now has embarked on a solo career. will perform on the opening night.
If you have any questions or would like to attend the private view or see some pictures of Lidia’s work, let me know.
