Sarah Wallengren is a Franco-Swedish artist working under the pseudonym SARITA. After having studied theoretical and applied arts at Stockholm University, La Sorbonne in Paris as well as at UNAM in Mexico City, Sarita develops an approach centered on the aesthetic manifestations of nature by moving in 2018 to a studio designed by Gert Wingårdh located nearby the lake Långhalsen in Sörmland. Birch in all its uniqueness and versatility gradually becomes the starting point of any project, both sculptural and two-dimensional (using the bark of the tree). She exhibits her works in Europe and North America.
"My aesthetic expression is about coming closer to nature’s textures, shapes and colors to highlight the fragility of it while capturing the vitality it encloses."
