Born in Mexico and a painter since the age of 13, Virgilio Lara’s favorite technique is water colour. His subjects include life and its magic, surreal fantasy. Extremely decorative and of high quality, his freestyle interpretation of the classic tale, Snow White, focused on magic and fantasy, reimagines the involvement of the dwarfs and the witch. Currently, Lara is currently an art teacher focusing on teaching different techniques in visual arts to young adults and children. He has painted a set of Fairy-tales exclusively for the Okapi WAG, Dubai.
