Artists - Sandra Baía


All human being share so much in common with each others and yet everyone of us is utterly unique. What is the source of our endlessly variable individuality? What drives the development of our personality from newborn to adult? Do we come to the world without identity? And do we actually have a clearly defined selfhood as adult? What are our perceptions about the individualism of the others, and more importantly about ourselves?

Sandra Baía ( 1968, Lisbon -Portugal) spent her childhood living in several African countries following her diplomat father. At the age of 18, she gained her independence and moved to London to work in the fashion industry where she rapidly acquired a resilient fighting spirit. After a few years, she started looking for her true identity, tired of permanently pretending and playing roles. She then returned to Portugal and established herself as a full time artist.
