Sophi Kravitz

Lecture

Born in Poughkeepsie, NY, Sophi Kravitz is an American artist. Early in her career she studied sculpture and bronze casting while building props and FX for movies (if it was a bleeding body part on TV in the 90s, she may have made it). Kravitz was a studio assistant to Jeff Koons, who she highly admires and considers a huge influence on her work.

Later, needing to make a living, she called on her science side and pursued an education, and then a career in engineering. She worked on room-sized process equipment and robotics large and small.

Kravitz’s works can be found primarily as temporary public interactive art. She currently lives and works near New York City, in the Hudson Valley.
