About

www.sophi.com.au

Sophi Odling paints on canvas and walls that reflect the environment and culture that she encounters. Traveling the world, seeing the people, streets and way of life, these are Sophis spectacle.

Born 1983 in Seoul, South Korea, Sophi grew up in Sydney, Australia where she currently lives and works. In 2005 Sophi completed her BFA at UNSW College of Fine Arts. Her murals can be seen in Thailand, Nicaragua and Australia, and has exhibited in Tokyo and Australia over the years.

Sophi focuses purely on her painting and growth in the mural/public art world. Her studio is based in the creative hub of Sydneys inner city. After completing an artist residency in Thailand in 2016, Sophi continues to plan her ongoing travels as the main source of inspiration for her works which celebrate the acceptance of cultural diversity and to provide awareness of our current social and global climate.
