From the bottom of a pool to giant murals all over New York, Proba work is quite distinctive ! Her surreal compositions are full life as she describe it : “My creations are supposed to evoke an emotion. My work is a celebration of color and pattern, which I would see as a positive stimulation of the senses.” From 2D to 3D, she manages to create mesmerizing goods to enlighten your interior. From ceramics to rugs, every piece begin with a 2D collage sketch. With her « Collage Rug Collection », layers of geometric forms and naive patterns are mixed together creating fuzzy colorful shapes.
The setting for one of her last project is … a pool. In the backyard of a historic mid-century house located in Palm Springs, she transformed a basic swimming pool into a colorful piece of art. The geometric and flower-like shapes offer an exciting swimming experience with a unique way of seeing art !
