Biography of Bigui

Bigui was born 1972 as Birgit Deuschle in Coburg, Germany.

Her artistic career started in 2000. In this year Bigui moved from Germany to Brazil and stayed there within a decade. Inspired by the culture, nature and colors Bigui was searching for ways to express herself and found a friend, teacher and mentor in the Brazilian artist Nanci Bastos.

During the few next years Bigui and Nanci Bastos worked closely together and Bigui developed her own personal style. The richness of nature, the bright sunlight, the overwhelming palette of natural colors formed and shaped the subjects of Bigui's paintings, her technique and the intense colors of her artworks up to today.

Today Bigui lives and works as an artist in Coburg, Germany. Her style has not changed. In her mind each artwork starts in Brazil, it develops itself, layer by layer, evolves around repeating subjects of nature, bright colors, the spirit of a 'new world' until she is satisfied with the expression of her painting and it is ready to receive a polished finish.

"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

Over the years Bigui has received invitations to both, national and international exhibitions as well as art fairs and art projects and her artwork has been recognized with the Palm Art Award in 2017 and the Recognition Prize 2018. Bigui is welcoming customer and prospects in her studio in Coburg.
