More About Clara Gabriel
From an early age, Clara Gabriel has had a direct connection to the visual arts. Through her family, she came into contact with various artistic techniques already as a child. For as long as she can remember, she has always kept a sketchbook or notebook. And her greatest inspiration? That might just be her grandfather, who printed, glued or painted entire worlds on paper — from still lifes and faces to landscapes — with different materials. That’s possibly also where her inclination towards the abstract is coming from.
For Clara, creating art comes as natural as breathing or eating. But whether she would take on art professionally, is something she seriously only asked herself after graduating from high school. Her cousin introduced her to the academic major of visual communication course. Another course to spark her interest was communication design. “The concept of communicating something visually to people inspired me to come up with so many new ideas, and I started creating my portfolio.” Beginning this autumn, she will be studying communication design at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences. And who knows, maybe we’ll see more prints, drawings and paintings from her soon.
