Sophie Aguilera Lester (London, 1984) is a young artist based in Barcelona. She completed her studies in ceramics during a stage in Madrid by María de Andrés and Alfredo Aguilera. Her creative process consists in a figurative practice that research on the relationship between childhood memories, myth and the subconscious.

Her work is deeply intimate and although aesthetically playful and naïve, it evokes layers of a darker narrative where themes like home, loss or the feminine experience are essential. The artist uses pieces of great beauty and sensuality to show us an intimate and sincere universe. A new expressive language that leads us to a world of fantasy, sometimes magical and sometimes troubling.

She has exhibited on numerous occasions both in Madrid and Barcelona, being her first solo exhibition at the gallery UntitledBcnand in 2011.
