Lara Minerva, born in 1992, is a Berlin-based artist with a bi-national and bi-cultural German-Greek background.  She graduated with a master’s degree in psychology from the „Freie Universität Berlin“. Her interest in the human psyche clearly shows in her collage work, as her collages often revolve around emotions, inner conflicts and interpersonal relationships. Intimacy is an important subject for the artist, which she describes as a moment of honesty between two or more people, where they take off their masks and show their true selves. This concept of honesty and vulnerability shows in the use of nudity in Minerva’s collages. The combination of the naked subjects with symbolic images of plants, birds or landscape cause associations in the viewer and often touch the viewer on a deeper level.

Lara’s collages appear in numerous private collections in Europe and the USA. Her work has been exhibited in Berlin, London and New York City.
