Inside the Studio
Visit with Alex Proba
Multidisciplinary artist, designer and founder of Proba Studio, Alex Proba takes us on a virtual tour of her Portland, Oregon studio. Originally destined to attend dental school, Alex followed her heart and attended design school in Hamburg, Germany, going on to create works that have graced the surfaces of pools, rugs, tables and textiles. Drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as the imagined inner-lives of plants, Brothers Grimm fairy tales, memory and the Memphis design movement, Alex creates bold patterns rife with color and humor. She shows us the newest pieces in her painting practice.
My work is a celebration of color and pattern, which I would see as a positive stimulation of the senses. I try to be inspired by more than the visuals of the everyday, such as sounds or smells, or even memories.
