A6 (15 x 10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on verso
Alisha Sofia’s practice focuses on the female form as both creator and artifact of visual identity. Her subjects, partially or completely nude, are surrounded by a rich symbolic lexicon of food, plants, and animals. Refusing objectification, they are calmly defiant: their power, strength, and intimate detail command engagement. Sofia’s technical strength and command of her materials allows the subtleties of each personality to emerge from her paintings.
Alisha Sofia attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, completing her degree at Art Center College of Design in 2009. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
