ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sónia Travassos was born in Coimbra, Portugal, in 1984. She graduated in Law from the University of Coimbra (FDUC, 2008) and in Psychology from the Universitat Abat Oliba Ceu, Barcelona (2013). She also holds a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from the Institute of Applied Psychology (ISPA), Lisbon. Sónia Travassos has always been a person curious about art and its multiple expressions. When she started studying Law, she felt the need to express herself creatively, saving herself from the rigidity of the Law by painting during her free time. Later, as a psychology student, she explored the complexity of pain in relationships through an organic and colorful approach, translating feelings into paintings in a very intense way. Since then, she has dedicated herself full-time to painting. Through her neo-expressionist style, she shapes society and human relations, according to her most intimate need for constant development and advancement. Her work is represented in private, national, and international collections, and she has shown her work in collective and individual exhibitions, such as the Anthology Biennial of Art (Milan, Italy), Goy Art (Rome, Italy), Res non Verba (Lleida – Catalonia, Spain), and Galerie Espace D’Un Instant (Paris, France).
