Sonia Ben Achoura originates from Paris, France. A multidisciplinary artist with a background in psychology, 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 characterised by a vivid chromatic palette, a detailed execution, and a futuristic edge.
Her visual art practice focuses predominantly on geometric abstraction and contemporary iconography. 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. Captivated by abstraction, her art nevertheless straddles the abstract and the figurative, resulting in compositions of unrestricted imagination. Intimations of perfection, her paintings manifest to reflect an inner world of chromatic intensity, dynamic forms and geometric perfection. She uses a wide range of mediums to weave her emotive tales into an intense chromatic experience. These include acrylics, oils, spray paint, LEDs, projections, and video mapping. Her concern for the environment transpires in her work. She contemplates future outcomes for our world in her futuristic, yet timeless creations.
A colourist at heart, she challenges existing chromatic limits in her art practice by experimenting with unexpected contrasts to achieve alchemical transformations whereby light is shaped into materiality. Uncanny compositions emerge from a place of meditation. She explores the mathematical structure of both mind and cosmos by weaving organic forms over the fabric of robotic geometry.
Ben Achoura exhibits her multimedia work across Europe and sells her art internationally. Her art and writings appear in publications regularly. She was nominated a Laureate by La Societe Academique des Arts Sciences Lettres de Paris, France. Her ground-breaking approach to geometric landscape recently won her awards.
