Layla Vladi

Greenhouse (2022)


Layla Vladi is a German-born visual artist currently based in San Francisco. Vladi’s brand of “visual poetry” reaches into every corner of the human imagination, blurring the lines between the past and future, the mundane and mystical, the real and surreal. Her work features imagined worlds full of dreamy landscapes and haunted figures, where glassy orbs hover in the sky, and flowers and butterflies proliferate as much as skulls and fire. These captured moments hold tension and quietude in equal measure, which is a testament to the endless spectrum of the human experience and our ability to feel two polar opposite emotions at once. Each work is an invitation to leave behind the everyday and give yourself over to the fantastic.
