Sofia Mitsola

Sofia Mitsola (b. 1992, Thessaloniki) is an artist based in London. Mitsola works primarily with paintings in which she investigates the female form. Her invented characters are informed by ancient Greek and Egyptian sculptures, usually depictions of goddesses or mythical creatures. These are set in simple geometric backgrounds with intensely bright and almost flat colours and are depicted naked and larger than human scale. Through them, she is playing with ideas about voyeurism, confrontation, and power. 

Mitsola received an MFA from Slade School of Fine Art (2018) and holds a BA from the School of Visual and Applied Arts from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

Solo exhibitions include ‘Sofia Mitsola: House of Aquamarina’, The Harley Gallery, Portland Collection Museum, Worksop (2022); ‘Aquamarina: Crocodilian Tears’, Pilar Corrias, London (2021); ‘Darladiladada’, Pilar Corrias, London (2020); ‘Banistiri’, Pilar Corrias, London (2019); ‘Jerwood Solo Presentations’, Jerwood Space, London (2019).
