My name is Sorpresa AKA Presa Hall.
The passion of art has thrived in me since birth. At the age of five, I won my first contest. I was mentioned in the Salt Lake Tribune as a talented young artist. My family nurtured my ambition by encouraging me to create everyday through various outlets.
I have experienced, taught and mentored with accomplished artists since my youth.
I began college level courses at the age of twelve and attended advanced art courses throughout High School. During college, I applied my experience and focused on discovering my artistic direction. I sold my canvas paintings to local collectors, painted murals on the wall of homes, and businesses. I was involved in many creative projects, bringing together other artists, and developing my own sense of style and expression.
Painting is an expression from my soul, but I always push the limits. I use the experience I’ve gained working with many mediums throughout my artistic career. I have an extensive knowledge with a hundred types and styles of mediums. Oil, acrylic, watercolor, airbrush, and sculpture, silkscreen, are only the beginning.
In a world that is run by technology I fully embrace this. With a background in computer graphics, photography, video, and other various media I have used these tools to create more depth and life in my work. It can be simple as paint to canvas, graphic art, live art with a performance, or a large-scale project where I’m working with other artists. I bring my creative expression to a formidable reality combining all my talents.
I am a mixed media artist with an element of ¡Sorpresa! (Surprise). Don’t expect to see mediocrity.
I create for the expression to have purpose, to be meaningful, and to evoke emotion. My World of imagination is boundless and free, where the only limitations that exist are the ones that I create for the piece. My true addiction is color. Each one moves the piece in a specific way and symbolizes the feeling. I use all of the mediums that I have been exposed to, and compose my own technique. Various arts are combined, to give the piece its own voice and form. It’s a journey throughout the surrealistic wonderland of my imagination…. I hope you will dare to join me.
