Tofino Art: Sonja Kobrehel

Sonja Kobrehel was born in Subotica, a border city of Hungary and former Yugoslavia. Sonja graduated from the Academy of Art in Novi Sad, former Yugoslavia and then lived in Szeged, Hungary until she moved to Vancouver in 2000.

Her work, a fascinating personal iconographic expressionism with echoes of Old Egyptian and a tangled mix of Balkan religious symbolism, has been displayed in shows and galleries in Spain, Poland, Hungary and Yugoslavia. Her technique is an eclectic mix of drawing, acrylic, oil on canvas, mixed media, collage and pastels.

As an artist, Sonja says that she thinks first of colours, then of symbols. When she has found the right colour, her heart is satisfied and the symbols perhaps can be seen to be correspondent to the states of being she finds herself in.

Sonja has been interested in art and becoming a visual artist since she was a little girl. Her mother worked at a Museum/Gallery and often brought Sonja with her to work instead of traditional daycare. Sonja loved the freedom she had to wander the gallery and get lost admiring the many great displays. She feels those days being surrounded by art have undoubtedly influenced her career as an artist. The small symbols Sonja uses in her work reflect on personal aspects of her life and her national heritage.

In Tofino, Sonja’s work can be found at the Lounge Collection art gallery.
