About Sofia Athineou:

Sofia Athineou is of Greek descent and lives in the Waitākere Ranges. She is a mixed media artist working with a range of materials such as metal, stone, wood, found objects, harakeke and predominantly in glass.

Sofia’s glassworks are organic forms that evoke elemental forces like wind, fire and water, with movement depicted by the play of light inside the glass. Recently, her work has shifted in scale to larger size works and outdoor installations that make comment on different social issues. The joy and satisfaction from creating large-scale works has been compelling for Sofia, who has exhibited outdoor installations at New Zealand Sculpture OnShore.
