Sonia Ben Achoura was born in Paris, France. Having travelled extensively, she settled in the UK. A self-taught artist, she was inspired by Leonardo da Vinci from an early age. Art and science converge in her paintings, manifesting in insightful explorations of mind and nature. Her career in fine art spans over two decades, with a distinctive body of work characterisedby a vivid chromatic palette, a detailed execution, and a futuristic edge. Sonia focuses predominantly on geometric abstraction. An elaborate art vocabulary allows her to bring to life powerful conceptualisations of mental phenomena,informed by thorough research and synthesised through visionary imagination.These manifest in psychological icons, blueprints of the mind in both oils and acrylics. Sonia’s intuitive style emanates from a meditative place. As a result, her paintings often incorporate figurative elements in her abstract works, giving rise to atmospheric compositions. Sonia regularly exhibits her work at galleries and art fairs in Europe. She sells her paintings internationally.
Sonia Ben Achoura creates innovative works of art at the intersection between art and science. With a Background in psychology, she depicts her insights into the psyche onto canvas. Her fascination with human nature at the present stage of evolution (characterised by pervasive interaction with technology) manifests in geometric compositions with futuristic overtones. Captivated by abstraction, her art nevertheless lies between the abstract and the figurative. The artist shapes light and colour as the basis for her compositions. Like intimations of perfection, her paintings are born out of an interplay between light and matter. She creates a world of vivid colour, dynamic forms, and geometric perfection. Her concern for the environment transpires throughout her body of work, as she contemplates future outcomes through her art. The potential for a partnership between mankind and nature is envisaged as she weaves organic forms over the fabric of robotic geometry.
