"Two days of boundary-burning music and art performance, Neon Lights brings to mind the muddy banks of Glastonbury" - Timeout Singapore
Lives and Works: Singapore and San Francisco
Soph O is a Singaporean visual artist who collects and draws imagery that borders between the mundane and extraordinary. Her practice revolves around capturing transient moments and everyday stories, focusing on the notion of place and landscape, narration and abstraction. These ideas are translated through repetition, reiteration and recurrence onto drawings, paintings, installations and murals.
Soph holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Elam School of Fine Arts in New Zealand (2010). She has shown her works at numerous local and international exhibitions, including “Logic Chromatic” (2018) solo exhibition at UltraSuperNew, Singapore, “Naiise UK Pop-Up Store”(2017) group exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery London, “PPC |珍珠坊: A Public Living Room” (2016) at People’s Park Complex as part of SG Artweek, “Superpsychics”(2013) collective pop-up exhibition at Future Perfect gallery Singapore, “Singapore Unintentional Islander ”(2014) solo exhibition at Twenty Two Singapore,“ Exposition Collective 2014” in Liège, Belgium, and “Wonder Women”(2010) at PostMuseum Singapore.
