Sonia Bensouda

Sonia Bensouda

Born: 1992

Hometown: Neuilly-Sur-Seine

Based in: London

​I was born in France and grew up in Morocco. I received a BA in Interior Architecture in Lyon, France. I moved to London in 2014 to study for a Master's degree in Interior and Spatial Design at UAL - Chelsea College of Art. I continue to work as an interior architect and independent artist in the city.

Growing up in the vibrant surroundings of Morocco has influenced my creative approach. Researching colour combinations and developing palettes is a significant part of my process. My background as an interior architect has shaped my passion for abstract geometry and composition. My process is to combines pastel tone palette and clean-cut geometric patterns to construct complex compositions, yet composition that are universally understandable.

The juxtaposition in my works often explores the relationship between heaviness and lightness, presence and absence⁠. The idea of being in two states, being here physically and somewhere else mentally. Being in a space physically and not being aware of your surroundings as the mind drifts elsewhere is something that we’ve all experienced.

My preferred medium is photography layered with digital collages on limited impressions on giclee paper. This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light.

Sonia Bensouda In The Studio

"Two states of being. A conceptual combination of architectural, sturdy surroundings and dream-like, surreal aesthetics."


More About Sonia Bensouda

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I usually start with photography. Traveling and wandering is probably the most important part of my process as my work is mostly photographic. These photos will often become the foundation of my collage work. Weeks later, I’ll revisit the photos and experiment with different geometrical and color compositions. This process is more instinctive and emotional; I will usually tweak the composition until I feel a sense of balance. As my medium is digital collage, I occasionally browse a copyright-free photography website. Where I’ll find something striking that complete the artwork narrative
