'Chaos' is an original artwork by Sonia Alins an artist focused on the creation of pieces of art (often three-dimensional) with a poetic narrative of a surreal nature with which she addresses her feelings, desires, dreams and nightmares. Sonia makes extensive use of the human figure (mostly feminine) and, at the same time, she explores the expressiveness of elements such as transparency and blur.
The artist has described "Chaos" as an allegory of how individualism has taken root in our society and as a criticism of populist movements and unethical behaviours and against those who, in front of adversities, encourage inequality and the idea of “every man for himself” instead of more constructive ideals such as social harmony, the common good, equal rights and other civic values.
As in other works by the artist, water stands as the perfect medium to communicate and express emotion. The characters in her paintings interact with this mass of water in which they find themselves immersed and, in that context, their feelings are amplified, their shouts are heard louder, their desperation is felt more profoundly.
Sonia obtained a Bachelor in Fine Arts, followed by a post-graduate from the University of Salamanca and later graduated with an illustration specialism from the University of Barcelona.
For nearly two decades, Sonia has had a very successful career as a professional illustrator alongside which she created works following her own interests and passion. She has received many international illustration awards including, the 2019 Award of Excellence, Communication Arts Illustration Annual 60, CA, California/USA, the 2019 Gold Award (Design Lotus. Illustration category) and Silver Award (Print Craft Lotus. Best use of illustration category), ADFEST 2019, Bangkok/Thailand, as well as the 2018 Gold Award, Global illustration Award 2018, Frankfurt Book Fair, Frankfurt/Germany.
