Sophie Schubakoff


Cosmopolitan Artist

I am a Master in Fine Arts and I have also done an exchange program to London SLADE during this period of time.  I have a life long love for painting and my theme WATER seems to be my ultimate study and search for truth.  I use water as a looking glass to reveal the truth of my vision.  Unlike a traditional portrait I like to play with illusions and distortion.  I have painted my subjects with my signature style of painting that I have been developing for more than 10 years.  As you can see I do not only do anonymous individuals but also paint fashion icons to give the traditional paint a burst of pop culture.  I use Marilyn Monroe who is such a great model as my Muse all the way to Daniel Craig the well know James Bond of our time.  I have also started to make portraits on commission where the client wants to be viewed through my eyes and in theory my Artistic Style.  I love what I do and believe that water is the future, the future to a clearer vision of my artistic integrity. 

I come from an artistic genetic background and believe that art in one way or another inbedded in my blood and soul.  I have got creation bubbling from my finger tips and am egar to bring it forward to be viewed as a new form of seeing
