My life is my art

Born in Zagreb, Sonja Brzak completed her higher art education at the Arthouse-College of Visual Arts in Ljubljana, where she obtained the title of graduate painter. Her paintings are rich in color, to attract the viewer with the harmony of colors and their complementarity. He often withholds the background, leaving the viewer to focus on colors and shapes and seek a new angle of view. Composition, colors, textures and continuous research create new possibilities in structure, perspective and relationships. Each new canvas creates a new story, a different approach and evokes positive emotions in us. Playing with textures and colors, often in an abstract way, opens up a lot of space for the artist to be creative and present the rich world of creativity. Paintings are creative, colorful and aesthetically highly positioned.

Brush and painting movements ensure top technology, dedication and high aesthetic value of each work and dominant quality. The most common subject of painting by the academic painter Sonja Brzak is the human figure. The painter is dedicated to portraying one or more human figures that she connects and merges into one inseparable whole. Her work mainly consists of paintings that at first glance seem abstract, and are composed of numerous shapes with sharp edges in the pure and dominant colors of red and blue.

More and more frequently, the images are thematically completely undefined and, with their geometric abstraction, distance themselves from the subject. The painter sometimes experiments with automatism and uncontrolled body movements, and she softens or "liberates" the sharpness and hardness of geometric motifs by dripping light or dark colors on colorful canvases, thus creating a swirling composition of small and large traces. Her most suggestive work is undoubtedly related to depictions of human figures, which she stylizes and transforms into abstract forms. The colors used are exactly what promises interesting solutions for some of the new ways of expression in painting.

The landscape as a motif is rarely encountered in the author's painting, but sometimes the motif takes her away and surprises her with its color and composition. Leaving part of the canvas with Landscape as a motif is rarely encountered in the author's painting, but sometimes the motif takes her and surprises her with its color and composition. Leaving part of the canvas with a blank, white surface, it stays on the safe terrain of detail and color.

She has been present on the international scene for several years by participating in her works on auction sales as well as online sales in Galleries.
