My name is Sofia Christoforou and I am a multidisciplinary artist from Cyprus.
My work is often framed around the concepts of storytelling, inner-reflection and interaction.
I work across a diverse range of media and material.
My artistic approach is intuitive, I let the making guide me. Whether is painting, ceramics or metalwork, I immerse myself into a flow state and create with no strict plan.
Through a poetic lens, I view life and investigate the human existence. I use my art to explore humanity and everything that comes with it,
the past, the present, the future
the before, the beyond
and the within.
Curiosity fuels my creative drive. I find myself absorbing information from everything that surrounds me.
My practice becomes an abstract response, a sensual exploration where I manifest the essence of the world I see.
My work takes shape in a spontaneous process, an instinctive performance, where I create a reciprocal channel of giving and receiving information with the material.
It is a conversation between me and the material, a physical language to create a tactile form of poetry.
