Sofia Echa

Acrylic on Metal.

Sofia Echa was born in 1992 in Vladivostok, Russia and settled in New York City in 2013 to continue her pursuit of a career in art after she received a bachelor degree in Economics and Japanese studies at Federal University of Vladivostok, Russia. "I paint with acrylic on canvas and metal. Working on metal sheets, I see my reflection in the unpainted areas through the abstract cloud-like strokes I make. The neutral color of metallic sheets works for me as a background. On both metal and canvas, I use achromatic gray as a base, which represents calmness and neutrality. I am fascinated by the density of gloss I put on top of my paint, which also reminds me of water. Also, I attach stretchers on my works on metal, so they have a shadow on the wall."
