Lauren Shapiro
Maitejosune Urrecgaga

The ceremonial entrance will leave you charmed by Lady Lauren Shapiro and Mrs. Maitejosune Urrechaga. The two artist have invited you to a dwelling place much like “Neverland”

The two queens of Triumphant Spells share a love for magical and mystical realms. Be ready to experience drawings, sculptures, installations and what not’s. the unusual few and widely separated characters of their work will give light to the fine incantation.

Mrs. Maitejosune Urrechagas artwork has been displayed national and internationally since 2005. Her DIY attitude is very compelling and very much alive which audiences continue to respond with enthusiasm.

She has grown to fancy towards group projects, which usually include oddball outcomes such as designing mini refrigerators to pimp my kart to the mind the snails project which ran during Miami’s Art Basel on Dec of 2006-2007, which she received a nod from the Miami new Times in their Best of Issue. TO her musical performance Pocket of Lollipops that joined forces with her husband and received top 5 song in South Florida.

She has curated, exhibited and performed at various art spaces and live music venues around the US. Including Dorsch Gallery, SwampSpace, Hollywood Art and Culture Center, Verge Art Fair, ArtFormz Gallery, and the traditional rock settings.
She was one of three artist chosen to paint the 7-foot alligator sculptures for Sawgrass Mills “Paying tribute to woman”

Lady Lauren Shapiro
is a South Florida native, and her artwork contains elements of both nature and the supernatural. Living in Florida has influenced her work through an appreciation and deep fascination with the ocean and all of its life forms. Lauren holds a BFA from Florida Atlantic University, and is currently a Graduate Fellow pursing an MFA in ceramics at the University of Miami.
She has fully immersed herself in the South Florida artist community as both teacher and artist. Previous to applying for candidacy of a Masters at the University of Miami, Lauren worked as an outreach instructor and in-house workshop leader at the Boca Museum of art and ceramics instructor at the Boca Raton Art School.
Her work in this series is inspired by metamorphosis, the connection between humans and nature, and how the actions of one will affect the other. The imagery that can be found in the artwork includes textures in nature, symbols from legends and folklore, as well as natural science and the microscopic world. Also turning to her dreams and subconscious thoughts she relies on intuition to guide her through the development of the work.
Her work has been exhibited at Museums and galleries in South Florida, to name a few: the Projects Space in FAT Village, The Lowe Museum, Girls Club, Locust Projects, and she has work in the private collection of Francie Bishop Good.
