Sophia DeStefano - BFA 2021

May 8 - August 31, 2021

BFA Studio Art - Intermedia, Minors in Art History and Anthropology

Sophia DeStefano, born in 1998, grew up in a sleepy costal town just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. Whether working in photography, digital art, printmaking, or paper-making, DeStefano uses monochrome color palettes to emphasize forms of memory and how the human condition is altered in the digital age. Often, drawing from personal experiences, her work is centered around disability culture or beckoning to places where she has traveled. Graduating from UMass with a degree in Studio Arts and minors in Art History and Anthropology, she aims to evolve her ideas and apply them to the ever changing social scene.
