Sofia Cacciapaglia

Sofia Cacciapaglia was born in Ponte dell’Olio, Italy in 1983.

She studied Fine Art at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milano where she graduated in 2006. After graduating she moved to New York in 2007 where she held her first personnal exhibition. Since then her work has been exhibited in galleries, foundations and museums in Italy, Switzerland, UK and China.

In 2011, she became the youngest artist invited to the Italian Pavillon for the 54° International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia. In 2023, Cacciapaglia was presented at Untitled Art Fair.

For the publication of the first monograph on her work, she completed “Locus Amoenus” in May 2019, her first large 360° installation that covered all the walls of her studio in Milan with cardboard retrieved from the streets, which she transformed into a blossoming garden from floor to ceiling. This work brings with it an environmental message, giving the salvaged material a second life through the representation of Nature and the rebirth of spring.
