About Sonia Boyce

Sonia Boyce is a British Afro-Caribbean artist, living and working in London. Her early pastel drawings and photographic collages addressed issues of race, ethnicity and contemporary urban experience, questioning racial stereotypes in the media and in day-to-day life. More recently her work has shifted to incorporate a variety of media that combine photographs, collages, films, prints, drawings, installation and sound. Sonia has worked with other artists in improvisational collaborations, bringing the audience into sharper focus as an integral part of the artwork and demonstrating how cultural differences might be articulated, mediated and enjoyed.
