Born Laura Mangual in 1973 in Brooklyn, New York and raised in a small town, Chambersburg, PA and currently living in Cleveland, Ohio. Lolo, a nickname given to her by a friend, is what she likes to be called and what her artwork is signed as. “My art is as deep as my heart ever digging and looking to understand love and all that it entails in every facet of my life. This is what drives me to paint and it’s what draws others to respond to my work because they want to understand this as well. “ Lolo’s art exploration began at Schenley High School in Pittsburgh, PA where she was taught to paint with acrylic and it’s the medium she paints with today. She has been a part of the Euclid Art Association and the Creative Artists Association in Cleveland, Ohio to get more acquainted with her passion in 2003-2008. Social media has been where she has built her career and sells her art. Her love for connecting with people to share her thoughts, love and wisdom through her positive words to sharing her paintings has gotten her connected to collectors all over the United States. She is now represented by the Mac Worthington Gallery of Contemporary Art in Columbus, Ohio which has been recently recognized as the Best Gallery in Columbus for 2016. Most recently, she sold her painting, I Paint My Feelings at the Bombay Sapphire Artisian Series at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan. She has her own wall at the iconic Metropolitan at the 9 in Downtown Cleveland, Ohio and continues to exhibit her work throughout Cleveland, Akron and Detroit. She is looking to exhibit in Europe and throughout the US in the near future.
