About Sonja Kobrehel
Sonja Kobrehel is a professional visual artist from Canada.She has experience working with many mediums but favours acrylics overall.
Her unique style is apparent in every piece she creates; it stretches from intricate whimsical personal iconography to calm monochromatic abstract pieces with always recognisable brushstroke.
Her works in visual arts reflect the constant changes, experience in her personal life.
She guided by her feelings, thoughts, dreams and visions.
The sources of her inspiration are many an appreciation. She loves to look for traces of the people who came before and clues about what they did there and why.
Journeys are an integral part of the inspirations. She is always intrigued by the human cultural elements and visual stimulation that she encounters. She finds that every place and culture reveals its beauty to her in the everyday life.
She likes to use symbols in her artwork and creating her personal iconography. The symbols are the clues to many aspects of her life, but her paintings usually start with a color idea than evolve into composition in which color is the primary subject.
She works in collage, various media on paper and canvas, mixing everything possible together and bring it to others in a visual format. Much attention is given to the surface texture adding different materials, carving, scratching, gluing...creating visual dialog.
She completes her work using drawing techniques and whatever else it takes to communicate her intended vision.
