Kansas City, Missouri
Laura Berman is a contemporary printmaker and painter who lives and works in Kansas City, Missouri.
A native of Barcelona, Spain, Berman’s love and keen eye for pattern, design and bold colors originated from her nascent home. Drawing inspiration from the natural world and a fascination with both the minuscule and the monumental, Berman creates images that describe multiplicity and sequences that layer time, space, form and color.
Berman has been in more than 150 exhibitions nationally and internationally and she is collected by several institutions including the Art Bank Collection in Washington, DC and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. She has been a visiting artist and artist-in-residence at many institutions around the world and her work has been featured in many publications including Printmaking at the Edge by Richard Noyce and A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking by Ehlers, Ehlbeck and Muise.
She is a currently a professor at the Kansas City Art Institute where she has taught printmaking and book arts since 2002.
