About the Artist
Gabriella Sanchez is a multidisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles. She received her B.F.A. in fine art in 2011. After graduating, Sanchez moved to Paris where she worked as an au pair and freelance graphic designer. It was at that time that she began to integrate graphic design with her fine art practice, which resulted in a commission for her first commercial art project by the French magazine, Le Particulier. In 2016, she established an art studio under her own name and was quickly commissioned by clients such as NIKE, The White House, Refinery29, Toyota, Nasty Gal, Planned Parenthood and more.
