"Hairdresser" Ouka Leele 

LOEWE presents collection dedicated to photographer Ouka Leele.

Born in Madrid in 1957 and still residing in the Spanish capital, Ouka Leele is a key figure of the dynamic 1980s art scene associated with the ‘Movida’, the explosion of countercultural energy —spanning and cross-pollinating between film, music, painting and other media—that took over Madrid after the end of the dictatorship in 1975.

Known for its surrealist sense of humour and characteristic technique —executed by work defined its times and continues to be relevant, as evinced by its inclusion in collections and institutions such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, Lisbon’s Instituto Cervantes and the Fondation Cartier in Paris.
