About

 

Born in Bogota, Colombia in 1989, Sofia Zuluaga moved to the United States at the age of 10. She began her formative training at the prestigious Pratt Institute (Brooklyn, New York) and quit shortly after in pursuit of a more in depth structured academic training based on the Old Masters technique. Zuluaga then moved to Florence, Italy and graduated from The Florence Academy of Art in 2015. 

Her works have been exhibited in the United States, UK and Italy and have been selected as finalists in internationally renowned art competitions such as Figurativas and ModPortrait. She has also been featured in publications such as ArteOggi, Revista de Universidad de los Andes, Guía Leonardo among others.
