Sabrina Tirvengadum is a London-based British Mauritian visual artist. As part of her studio practice, she creates collages made from magazine cut-outs, vivid digital illustrations, bold graphics and photography. Her practice focuses on her identity and cultural heritage.
She explores the fragile stories that often go untold. Sabrina studied Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster, and for many years she worked as a Graphic designer.
Having hearing loss as a second-generation immigrant, she learned how to hide and suppress her struggles due to ingrained ableism from her culture and western society. In an effort to open up a dialogue about identity, Sabrina turned to protest art to communicate disability justice. Sabrina is one of the co-founders of We’re All Human. They’re a group of creatives who’re driving momentum for an inclusive culture in digital design spaces.
She was selected for the 2022 London Creative Network Artist Development Programme at SPACE.
