Zsofia Schweger ’12

Zsofia Schweger
Zsofia Schweger is a Hungarian artist based in London.

Zsofia had lived in the US for 5 years and studied at Wellesley College, before she moved to London in 2013. She then attended the Slade School of Fine Art, graduating with an MA in 2015. Zsofia’s work in painting is informed by her experience of moving countries: she is interested in human relationships to spaces in general and the notions of home and belonging in particular. Zsofia was selected for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2016 and Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2017. She has been supported by several generous prizes, including the Jealous Prize, Griffin Art Prize, the Alice C. Cole Award, and the ‘One To Watch’ Award. Since her first solo exhibition at Griffin Gallery in London in 2016, she has had solo shows at Edel Assanti (London), Sapar Contemporary (New York), Lundgren Gallery (Palma de Mallorca), Inda Gallery (Budapest), and Rutger Brandt Gallery (Amsterdam).
