About the Artist

Sofia Barton is a Cultural Activist and Multidisciplinary Artist from the North East who creates contemporary artwork inspired by nature and her Punjabi heritage. 

This contemporary artwork is often comprised of bright colour palettes which are influenced by South Asian textiles and architecture to vintage matchboxes. Inspired by everyday objects she creates pieces depicting backgrounds and context of places, merging the traditional with a careful study of a modern society. Her creative practice has developed links with multiculturalism, feminism, and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Clients have included Northern Pride, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Wild in Art, GemArts, Laing Art Gallery, Durham University, Tyneside Cinema and NEXUS.
