Sara Bichao

Sara Bichão’s work considers the artist's understanding of identity and traveling, oscillating from a personal view of life to a symbolic approach of colors, forms and meanings. At once ephemeral and contemplative, Bichão creates a balanced environment for the viewer, encouraging the discovery of symbolic meaning.
