The beautiful artwork presented above is “Freda” by Sofia Bonati, a self-taught artist from Argentina currently living in the UK.
Sofia’s unique artwork is absolutely stunning; with watercolors and pencils, she creates woman’s portraits which combine reality and imagination.
Each collection features women’s portraits in different styles and themes, but always share the most noticeable element in her art: the dramatic look.
It can be interpreted in many ways by the subjective viewer; some see it as indifferent
or melancholic look while some see a profound and proud expression in her eyes.
In all cases, the expressive eyes cannot be avoided and gets under your skin.
This is the power of her unique and interesting art.
In her collections, there are repeated elements which combine imaginative ideas with the realistic portrait; one of them is the women’s hair, presented in each portrait differently by size, shape and color.
sometimes it is a rainy cloud, sometimes an umbrella or a mountain and always has a unique presence.
Another collection worth checking is the Butterflies portraits. Again here, the hair is recruited to present an “Art-Nouveau”- inspired portraits
