ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sofya Mirvis is a mixed media artist living and working in Philadelphia. Her work combines ethereal landscape with figurative collage elements rendering narratives of a strangely familiar, yet different reality. Originally from Moscow. Russia, Sofya draws references from eastern European folklore, cultural anthropologies and the phenomenology of nature.

"In the synthesis of media and subject I create a diverse sensory experience. I want to elevate the sludge of your coffee. I want to deconstruct your elitism".

Sofya is a graduate of Tyler School of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Exhibitions include Yes! gallery NYC, Seeds Gallery Philadelphia, and the Notre Dame of Maryland University Baltimore. Publications include Certain Circuits, NY Gallery & Studio and DC Modern Luxury. She is the recipient the First Place Award at the Drawn at PAFA exhibition and the Best New Artist award at the Life and Planet exhibition, 532 Gallery, New York.
