Laura Obon makes abstract collages out of paper. She is interested in the concept of seeing Art as a tool, described in the book written by Alined Botton and John Armstrong Art as Therapy.
Obon recently participated in a group exhibition at Islington Art Factory, she was selected by Leyden Gallery to be part of the Platform for Emerging Arts 17 and was part of the Winter Salon Exhibition at Rye Creative Centre. She is currently part of the Art of Caring exhibition at St Pancras Hospital.
Her first solo exhibition, at the Yorkshire Art Space, was reviewed by Robert Clark in the Weekend Guardian. She also completed two public commissions at the Rotherham Hospital and the Northen General Hospital and participated in group exhibitions in Korea, Spain, and Los Angeles.
Obon grew up in Tenerife and moved to the U.K in 1998. She completed in 2003 a BA in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University and moved to London in 2006 to undertake an MA in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts. Obon is based in London where she works as an Art Teacher and develops her career as an artist.
