ABOUT

Sonja Cabalt is a multi-disciplinary artist/designer living and working in Amsterdam. Her work focuses mainly on processes of growth and decay, from micro to macro level and shows the vulnerability of nature and people. 
She is known for her tactile approach, playing with texture, experimental techniques and organic shapes. 
Because her work moves between abstraction and figuration it is often difficult to interpret. This creates a certain tension and remains
open to the viewer's interpretations and imagination.

 

 

Studio

Her studio is located in Amsterdam in the eastern harbour district and is
open to visit by appointment.
