Julia Leis Lap is a multidisciplinary designer with Spanish and Dutch roots, currently based in Rotterdam. With a background in illustration, she integrates absurdism in her practice to create eye-catching wonderous works.
She grew up in Galicia, North-West of Spain, surrounded by nature and a rich autonomous culture that often influences her work.
In her work derailing, that evolved in collaboration with Chris Geurtsen, they show an absurd dialogue over breakfast as a result from non-critical news consumption. The situation dissects the effect of the unreflected digestion of mass media to stimulate the critical awareness of the viewers’ consumption.
Julia pushes the narrative of her work by inventing ridiculous situations filled with satire to speak up about current social issues which gives her work a layered quality.
