Sofía Zolezzi is a self-taught artist from Chile. In 2002, when she
was 15 years old she learned classic oil painting at the
Fine-Art-School in Valparaíso, Chile. In 2004 Sofía won a regional
“Young Artist Award”, obtaining the 1st and 3rd place in the same
event. As being part of an art-influenced family she has been learning
and having art experiences since she was 8 years old.
Today she is a full time Visual Artist but her background as a
professional Product-Design Engineer has directly influenced her
artistic approach from design; from a systematic creative process,
research and development of innovative proposals. Sofia’s abstract art
focuses on “lines” as the main element of study to communicate through
a gestural expression.
Her recent artworks are a result of variations in the characteristics
of a “line”, to express different emotions. Changes in movement,
speed, opacity, curvature and also the way lines overlap each other.
There is a visual path which the observer can follow, where different
emotions are emerging through those line-variations and, as a whole,
are trying to reach and express balance.
Zolezzi has recently collaborated with international galleries as Van
Gogh Art Gallery from Spain in “ART-Innsbruck” 2020, Austria. And she
will be part of “World-Art Dubai” in October with SouthTrip Art
Gallery representing contemporary Latin-American art.
