Sofia Zolezzi 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.
