"Through the eyes of a foreigner that doesn't exactly share the same language and culture sometimes reality turns into something surreal and deformed" - Leyre Arroyo Abaroa

Leyre is a Spanish artist born in Madrid and currently living in Toronto. Out of her personal longing to understand and become accepted in her new surroundings, she observes everyday life to study the social behaviour and cultural setting around her. In her works, she depicts these scenes through her perspective with a strong Spanish influence, making ordinary life into something extraordinary.
