                   The Power of the Click


Layer 1/ The Lala World (2008-present):  Lala Drona created a fictional universe where Lala Drona leads an art laboratory which conducts experiments on Muses to extract their inspiration.  In this universe, Lala Drona uses the inspiration extracted to inspire the creation of her own art pieces to be bought and sold in a dystopian art market. 

Layer 2/ Based on a Fact (2012-present): The artist has created an online news platform which communicates mock-journalistic articles covering events that take place in The Lala World (Layer 1).  In the eyes of this media outlet, Lala Drona is portrayed as a trickster and villain, and is an ample source for scandalous stories.  The artist continues to update the news platform with articles by fictional journalists on www.basedonafact.com.  

Layer 3/ Our collective reality:  This is where we experience the artwork.  This is where all layers of reality collide: Conceived in layer 1, commented on in layer 2, and then experienced in layer 3.  The artist considers her exhibited art pieces to be the fruits of the muse experiments taking place in the fictional art laboratory. The art pieces created in the The Lala World break through to our collective reality, blurring the boundaries between art, fantasy, and “the real.”

Artist's CV


Lala Drona is a Venezuelan-American painter and video artist, born in Denver, Colorado. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado, Lala Drona has since published and exhibited her work internationally.  Most recently, her videos and paintings exploring digital spaces and the female gaze, were shown at the Cite des Arts de Paris.  Her paintings, videos, and writing explore the monstrous feminine, alternate realities, and void of the digital world.  The totality of her artwork contributes to, and exists within a fictional universe and mythology established online and then recontextualized in the physical world through paint on canvas, performance, and sculpture. Her paintings and videos create an intimate and uncanny sense of unease, adding depth to her oeuvre and compelling viewers to consider the impact of institutional structures on individual identity. Lala Drona’s body of work engages with broader social and cultural issues.  She is based in Paris, France.

Artist Statement:

​​Lala Drona plays with the idea of the mirror and reflectivity, alternate realities, the transitions through these realities and how they manifest in our daily lives. Refusing to choose just one medium, she paints, writes, and creates short films, all which take place in her artistic universe. The voyage from the virtual to the real, and vice versa, play a significant role within her practice, and she represents these transition with her use of symmetry and grayscale. She re-contextualizes virtual media (stories, digital art, and videos) in reality through paint and canvas, tying everything together to create a cohesive and complex narrative.


2012-2022 Meta-art piece, fake news platform, Fictional dystopian universe inspired by the artist's life.
