Cecilia Vadala

Last updated: May 29, 2024

Born and raised in Italy, Cecilia Vadala has a background in Philosophy and Art History. A graduate of the MFA program in Theatre Design and Production from the University of British Columbia, Cecilia designs for stage and screen, focusing on the scenic design practice.

As a designer, Cecilia considers herself a visual storyteller. Her aesthetic is suggestive and evocative. In her work, the space is another character that evolves and tells a story on its own. As an artist, Cecilia explores the connections between emotions and materials, feelings, and textures, often introducing a sensorial component to her designs.
