Sofia Escobar

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 89
Sofia Escobar is a Toronto-based artist born and raised in Peru and Ecuador. She completed her studies at OCAD University in Toronto in 2014, majoring in Material Art & Design, and specializing in Fibre. 
Driven by an ongoing interest in material and space, Sofia uses textile construction techniques and processes, to build intricate interwoven thread sculptures that explore themes of architecture and optical illusion.
Her recent work explores new ways in which textiles could behave with their surroundings through material language, technology, and participatory exchanges with the viewer. 

Currently available for commission work.
