While Sophia Angelis lives and works in Greece, her art transcends her residency. Armed with universal themes and an urgent desire to convey messages the everyday observers often overlook, Angelis paints with strength, joy and thought-provoking optimism. For years Angelis struggled with serial tragedies that threatened to bind her, much like the ships tied at the jetty in her A’ Period. However Angelis’ triumph has been in realizing the vanity of our existence, reconciling with death and finding strength in the joy of life.
Sophia Angelis’ work explores the power of color and symbolism. From splendid landscapes to her portrayals of Greek culture, her paintings are poetry on canvas. She vividly expresses autobiographical experiences and existential quests in an attempt for a deeper perception into the human soul. Through her work, Sophia Angelis beckons the viewer to stop and rediscover life's true treasures, nature, peace, love and friendship. Angelis’ work has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the world.
