Sofie Fatouretchi 1991

Sofie Fatouretchi studies at the University of Applied Arts in the class of painting with Henning Bohl, lives and works in Vienna. Her artistic practice deals simultaneously with a processing of the experienced, as well as a mystification of everyday life. Her works live in the threshold of the theater of the social world: her concern is to stimulate the imagination, and move away from prescriptive.

Sofie Fatouretchi is an artist and musician, born in California to Austrian and Iranian parents. She spent her teenage years in Vienna studying classical violin and viola at the Konservatorium, and after a move to Los Angeles she worked at Stones Throw Records, releasing a 2LP compilation entitled Sofie’s SOS Tape, and became a core member of the original Boiler Room team, a move that saw her taking on creative direction in London and New York. As of 2017 she resides in Vienna, where she studies painting under Henning Bohl at the University of Applied Arts, as well as pursues a teaching degree in Philosophy, Psychology and English. She works as a musician, with compositions including soundtracks for film, TV, and advertisements. She plays violin in the Wiener Akademische Philharmonie, and works as a DJ, with her own radio shows on London’s NTS and Austria’s FM4. Her debut, self- produced solo album, Cult Survivor, appeared in July 2020 on Stones Throw Records. Her second album, Harlequin, will be released on the label in September 2022.
