Sophie Varela is a young, talented artist from Paris, France. Since graduating with a diploma in Media and Art in 2004, she has since moved on into to doing freelance work (Varela collaborates with two agencies – one in Paris and one in Italy).
Varela is known for her ability to transform her muses into illustrations that are then used as editorials in every facet of the design/entertainment industry. While she is primarily focused on the feminitiy of her pieces, there is an overt sexuality that moves through each piece and has become a main idea in her main body of work.
Very traditionalist in her methodology and tools, Varela experiments with modern society and “Rebirth” period techniques.
