Sabrina Amigoni was born in 1984 in Switzerland, in Lausanne, where she grew up part of her childhood. At the age of 9, she moved with her family to the countryside near Yverdon-les-Bains. Today, she lives and works in her studio in Suchy, in Nord vaudois.
With a strong attraction for the creative fields from an early age, she discovered the profession of fashion designer at 10 years old, thanks to a documentary on the designs of Walt Disney dresses. From that day, she began to design clothes and create small collections. At the end of her school career, she begins studies in fashion design which she will be forced to interrupt before their finality. She then trained in the administrative field and subsequently studied graphic designer. However, she doesn’t find the passion that she experienced during her first professional immersion in the artistic world and chained professional disappointments for almost 10 years.
In 2014, approaching her 30th birthday, she realized the just meaning she wanted to give to her life and left her status as an employee. She worked full time on her drawings and paintings for several months. As a result, the "Color Portraits" series was born, which she exhibited for the first time in 2016 during a solo show.
Enthusiastic about fashion design in her youth, she quickly focused more on the faces whose expression of looks and hair movements fascinated her. In her portraits, however, we find the stylized side that is similar to the graphic side, two universes that she has encountered and from which she draws inspiration today.
His paintings are mainly composed of acrylic and epoxy resin. She likes to texture materials to make them more lively and to mix the use of tools like brushes and knives. Constantly exploring new plastic horizons, she invents her own textures based on pigments, binders and other substrates, working in parallel on lighting and light games with which she is constantly experimenting.
What catches the eye at first glance, after the subject, are the bright colors and the effects with which the paintings reflect light, for example going from matt to glossy or silver to multicolor. The expressive, contrasting and sparkling paintings of Sabrina Amigoni are a means of transmitting to the viewer his energy and his good vibes.
