Artist Bio

Sabela is a Spanish artist based in Hamburg (Germany). 

Her artworks are the tool she uses for tapping better into her intuition and channel messages. Using the intuition to paint without expectations is what allows our subconscious to speak out loud to ourselves, guiding us through life. Her art is not about perfection but about following this process of what naturally feels good. 

Painting portraits is one of the practises that Sabela enjoys the most because she is able to grasp the true essence of the person in front, seeing beyond a human body and focusing on the colors that the person reflects and the energy that shines from the inside out.

Solo Expo "Palabras Perdidas"

November 2019 - Hamburg

„These powerful tones on their most intense shades remind me of how alive I am.“ Says Spanish born artist Ela Besela about her works. „Feelings have no form or color per se. Still, they shape our lives and define our perception of people and things around us. I chose to paint emotions, the inside of things because I don’t feel the need to reproduce the outside, the surface of what we consider our reality.“

Elas work is filled with recurring symbols like hearts and eyes – windows to the soul and the truth.
The exhibited collection “Palabras Perdidas” (“Forgotten Words”) includes a script that sets each artwork in a bigger context. For the viewer, this second layer offers unique additional access to her works.

So, let’s dive into the bright and colorful world of Ela Besela. There’s a chance we might find some of our own feelings laid bare of the canvas.
