Sabrina Barrios

Barrios_Sabrina_portrait2Sabrina Barrios was born and raised in the south of Brazil, where she studied Graphic Design (2004). She also lived in London and São Paulo, where she worked with editorial design at MTV and Globo-Condé Nast. In 2009 Sabrina moved to New York and completed her Masters degree in Fine Arts at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute (2012). In 2012 and 2013, the artist traveled with her collaborative, Hide-and-Seek, making and showing art–in Berlin, Chicago and Rio de Janeiro.

Sabrina’s work is presented in several mediums: paintings, drawings, videos and installations, though they all deal with a single concept, that questions reality, time, space and the choices one makes throughout life–that might have an effect on other people’s trajectories. Her research on psychology, quantum mechanics and ancient history is a solid base for her conceptual work. Participation of the audience is important and the 3D drawings (geometric structures/installations) that Sabrina creates, allow people to navigate inside of an instant in time. A thought, frozen at the exact moment a decision is being made, is where they walk towards.
