Sofiya Kuzmina


Sofiya was born in Moscow in 1998 and is now based in New York City where she attends New York Academy of Art for her MFA. Sofiya has developed a personal vision based on intimate moments of her life as a means to draw commentary about complex yet commonly relatable ideas. The focuses of some of her recent series are exploring the duality of lives of New York City nightlife performers in the time of pandemic isolation or discussing the sense of belonging in the context of immigration. A lot of her art draws inspiration from her experience of immigrating to New York from Russia and discovering a new more open-minded culture she was not exposed to before.
