Bigui has been an artist since 2000 and has lived for several years in Brazil. At the moment she lives and works as an artist in Germany. During her career Bigui has received invitations to both national and international exhibitions as well as art fairs and art events. Bigui was honoured to receive the Palm Art Award in 2017 and also in 2018. Objects of the nature fascinate her and she loves their intense colours. When it comes to the creation of her artworks she does not know how long she spends working on each piece of art. It is a creative process that is built up layer by layer until a certain polished finished comes to the work. For Bigui effect is not important in her work, for her the importance lies in the expression.
"So I said to myself – I´ll paint what I see – what the flower is to me but I´ll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it.“ Georgia O´Keeffe 1939
What the critics say
"Her art expresses nature in all its form and magnificence and in the clearness of its colours. She depicts the tropics in all its lush appearance. She approached painting in 2000 whilst in Brazil and she was able to represent the charm and fascination which the strong colours of nature have had on her as a painter. She started painting in the art studio of a Brazilian artist. The vividness of her colour palette evokes the smells, the flavors, the sounds of a place, of nature – the true protagonist of her research – which shines with all its vitality in everyday life. The constant observation of nature in daily life with its disruptive nature, fascinates her and lead her to focus on details. The relationship between human beings and nature has changed over the centuries, especially in its artistic representation, but its ancestral and magical relationship is untouched. Certainly, it represents a source of inspiration that continues to influence the viewer´s mind.“ - Laura Francesca Di Trapani 2017
