Sabrina Tirvengadum (b. 1984 British Mauritian) is a visual artist and graphic designer based in London.

Her artistic practice is a reflection of her diverse background, exploring her rich cultural heritage and identity.

Sabrina’s art delves into the complexities of her Mauritian family history, deeply influenced by the legacies of colonialism. With a background in Photographic Arts and graphic design, her work challenges ableist systems and champions inclusivity in digital spaces through We’re All Human. Sabrina’s dynamic artistic practice combines collage, digital illustration, AI, and photography, inviting viewers to join her on a journey of self-discovery and reflection.

Film: A souvenir to keep

Step into the past as we explore a family’s trip to Mauritius in 1993. This story is about family, the beautiful landscape, moments of sadness, and new beginnings.

We get to see it all through the camera lens of her late father Soopramanien Tirvengadum. Sabrina and her partner, Mark Allred, rediscovered his footage and brought it back to life.

I breathe life into my ancestors’ stories and pay homage to their existence.
