Sofia's work revolves around abstract/topographical geometric forms constructed of triangles. Referring to them as meshes, they are explorations of shape, weight, gravity, and illusion. Inspired by 3D software and its skeletal wireframes, replicating the geometric phenomena became an obsession. /sf

Sofia has experimented with different mediums and surfaces such as murals, paintings, sculpture, and relief printing to showcase how organic the meshes can be.

This is Alli's first Art Battle! Her main form of medium is oil painting so she is interested to see how she can push herself to create faster with oil's longer painting process./sf
I am so excited for my first time participating in the Art Battle competition! Oil painting is my main form of medium, which is a longer painting process than other mediums, so I can’t wait to see how I can push myself to create faster and with no distractions and more discipline! Thank you to everyone involved and good luck to all the artists!

For me it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to mold a small fragment of this reality with the language of pigment and shapes, let's use this opportunity to use art as a key to the world of ideas, so that we can see a brief sketch of our spirit and feel for a moment the strength of Peace!
