Originally trained as a graphic designer both in Athens and London, Sofia Stevi has deployed different media to realise her artistic ideas over the years, including bookbinding, painting and writing. Apart from being a creator, she also enjoys facilitating and promoting the work of others, as her experience in publishing and curating reveals: Sofia has co-founded a poetry press in London, and is currently running a project space in Athens called Fokidos.

Her intensely emotional use of colour, intuitiveness in drawing and overall softness in both material and form make Sofia Stevi’s work irresistibly attractive and relatable, even when it deals with deep psychological issues such as repressed desire, social oppression and the female experience in a patriarchal society.

For those in love with fine art and contemporary art, be welcome to to discover this incredible artist’s work.
