Sabrina Tirvengadum is a deaf British Mauritian visual artist. Sabrina studied Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster, and for many years she worked as a Graphic designer.

As part of her studio practice, she creates collages, digital illustrations, bold graphics and photography. She is constantly experimenting with new techniques and mediums, pushing the boundaries of her artistic abilities.

Sabrina’s art is a representation of her personal identity and cultural heritage. Her life-long experience of lip-reading has given her a distinct perspective and understanding of human emotions and expressions, which she incorporates into her work. She explores complex and delicate stories that reflect her own experiences and the rich history of her family.

Sabrina is co-founder of We’re All Human, a team dedicated to promoting inclusivity in digital spaces. As a second-generation immigrant with hearing loss, Sabrina has personally experienced the impact of ableism in both her culture and western society and works to challenge and disrupt these systems through her art.
