Living and working in a city completely obsessed with weight, green smoothies and Instagram filters, Sara Oakley’s satirical work pokes fun at the absurdity that is Los Angeles, California. Recently liberated from a decade-long career in advertising and having struggled with her own eating disorder, Sara tackles sensitive topics with the sarcasm and wit of someone who’s seen behind the curtain.
Sara’s bright, colorful pieces stand in stark contrast to their darker subject matter. Leaning on her background as a designer, her paintings have a digital polish, but with the grit and texture of fine art.
