Sophia Oldsman (United States) Residence: April to May, 2016
Sophia Oldsman is a printmaker and an illustrator based in Boston, Massachusetts.
She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2015. Her work has been exhibited in Cambridge, Providence, and New York City.
Most of Sophia’s work focuses on people and their identities. She is interested in discovering how one might see themselves but also how they choose to present themselves to the world around them.
At the Studio Kura, she would like to take inspiration from traditional woodblock prints. She will be exploring the traditional culture around Itoshima and other areas of Japan and use it in combination with both traditional and contemporary methods in block printing.
Sophia Oldsman’s exhibition at Studio Kura will be held on 28th and 29th May, 2016.
