Brigette Hoffman was born in 1991 in Miami, fl. where she currently lives and works. She was raised in America to German and Nicaraguan parents. Hoffman completed her BFA at The Academy of Fine Arts, Hamburg (Hochschule für Bildende Kunst Hamburg) Germany. Her first institutional exhibition was held at The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Germany in 2019 titled ‘ALLES KNETTEN, Metamorphose eines Materials’.
