Soph O is a Singaporean visual artist who collects and draws imagery that borders between the mundane and extraordinary. Her practice revolves around capturing transient moments and everyday stories translated through the notion of repetition, reiteration and recurrence onto drawings, paintings, digital illustrations, installations and murals.
Soph holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Elam School of Fine Arts in New Zealand (2010). She has shown her works at numerous local and international exhibitions, including “Naiise UK Pop-Up Store” (2017) group exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery London, “PPC | 珍珠坊: A Public Living Room” (2016) at People’s Park Complex as part of SG Artweek, “River Festival 2015, Urban Artery” (2015) group exhibition at Kult Gallery Singapore, “Superpsychics”(2013) collective pop-up exhibition at Future Perfect gallery Singapore, “Singapore Unintentional Islander” (2014) solo exhibition at Twenty Two Singapore, “Exposition Collective 2014” in Liège, Belgium, and “Wonder Women” (2010) at PostMuseum Singapore.
Her most recent commissions have included Bright Nights Sentosa, Kilo Lounge, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, Noise Singapore and the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs in partnership with the Delhi Metro Project for large-scale murals and installations in Singapore and India.
