Sophia Chizuco Bio

Sophia Chizuco is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in Japan, Chizuco began her career there as a representational artist. She earned her B.A. in Art and Education from Tokyo Gakugei University. In 2000 she moved to New York to study abstract paintings with Larry Poons at the Art Students League of New York. Here she earned a certificate in painting for her studies.

Chizuco’s main discipline is abstract art, painting/drawing, and installation. Since 2009, she has been working to paint an abstract landscape series with media such as acrylic, oil, watercolor, and pen and ink. She draws abstract forms, geometric shapes, and lines and paints many glazes. Chizuco also creates installations with salt, eggshells, and light.

In 2013, Chizuco was a part of the Immigrant Artists Program, acting as a mentor at the New York Foundation of Art. She is the recipient of both the grand prize from ArtNetwork and the Director’s Recognition Award from Period Gallery. Also she received an honorable mention from Pen and Brush Inc. and Exposition D’Artistes Contemporains Franco-Japonais, Salon du Blanc, Japan. Additionally, she won a merit scholarship from the Art Students League of New York. Her works are in the permanent collection of the Shoko-ji temple and Osaka Medical Center as well as in many private collections.  

              The artist has exhibited nationally and internationally at the Chelsea Museum (New York), the Staten Island Museum (New York), the New York Hall of Science (New York), Lincoln Center (New York), Art Monaco 13 (Monaco), the Affordable Art Fair Brussels (Belgium), the LA Art Show 2013 (Los Angels), the Red Dot Art Fair Miami (Florida), Artexpo NY 2013 (New York), the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum (Japan), and Shoko-ji temple (Japan).
