Sofia Mitsola
Sofia Mitsola works in painting, drawing and print to explore representations of the female body.

These incorporate motifs associated with Greek and Egyptian mythology, resulting in works that elude danger, strength, fragility and innocence.

Slade School of Fine Art in 2018. During her postgraduate studies she received the
Euan Uglow Memorial Scholarship from the Slade School of Fine Art, the Schilizzi
Scholarship from the Schilizzi Foundation, and the NEON Scholarship from NEON
Organization for Culture and Development. In 2018, she was awarded the William
Coldstream Prize from the Slade School of Fine Art, the British Institution Award for Studentsfrom the Royal Academy of Arts for her participation in the 250th Summer Exhibition, and the Tiffany & Co x Outset Studiomakers Prize.
