About the Artist:

Sofia Enriquez is a visual artist from southern California. She currently operates from her studio in Manoa Valley, Honolulu, HI where she creates works that explore her intercultural identity, symbolism, and feminism. In 2014, Enriquez graduated from Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, California with a BFA in Communication Arts.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Her practice consists of murals, large scale paintings, and her fashion collection MUCHO, that consists of one-of-a-kind painted garments. Enriquez’s visual language includes simplified portraiture that is inspired by androgyny, traditional catholic paintings, and symbols such as Paisley and fluid-like graphic compositions that create the illusion of movement and timelessness.⁠⁠

Enriquez has painted over 30 murals, design private commissioned work, and has installed public artworks for cities in California, Mexico, Japan, France, and for Goldenvoice music festivals – including the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.⁠⁠
