Débora Sánchez Viqueira was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she studied Interior Architecture and Design. In 2002 she moved to Madrid, Spain, and has been since working as a designer and artist.
Sanchez’s relationship with drawing and painting began at a very early age, through art workshops by renowned Argentinean masters, which led her to develop a great passion for different materials and techniques.
The evolution in Interior Architecture developed in Argentina and then in Spain, through numerous projects. In 2002 she co-founded a company linked to design, taking on the role of Creative Director. Through painting and digital art she created collections with textile materials, which were exhibited in important fairs, such as Maison et Objet (Paris), ICFF (New York), BDNY (New York); Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Over the 25+ years in the artistic world, her work has evolved from an expressionist style that marked her beginnings, to the abstract expressionism that defines her current work. In each of her pieces the viewer can observe the influence of design studies, as textures and spaces emerge from the pictorial surface, experimenting with relief. Her artistic work is based on the observation of nature and the beauty it reflects. She captures on canvas, wood or paper, using collage techniques, digital art, acrylics, pencils and watercolors, expressionist abstractions and her way of seeing the environment, using color as a fundamental tool, either vivid or neutral, and materials that enhance the aesthetic sense of her paintings.
Sanchez’s works of art have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, where she is recognized by gallery owners, curators and private clients. “Exploring textures, materials, spaces and elements, I am discovering new pictorial and sculptural techniques, inspired by the four elements of Nature, which take force in the work and relates them to the different manifestations of matter giving life to shapes in 2D and 3D.”
