Sonya Sklaroff (b.1970) is a New York-based artist. Her paintings use the beautiful but often-overlooked infrastructure of New York — fire escapes, water towers, and traffic lights — to explore the complex interconnectedness of urban existence. Recent solo exhibitions include New York Portraits, Galerie Sparts, Paris, France (2014); Recent Works, Galerie Anagama, Versailles, France (2013); and Urban Reflections, Jenkins Johnson Gallery, New York, NY (2010). She has also recently published her self-titled book with publisher Livre d’Art, France (2014).
Her recent residencies include the Artist Residency, Santa Fe Art Institute, Santa Fe, NM (2001-2003); World Views, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York, NY (1998-1999); and the Artist Residency, The Ragdale Foundation, Lake Forest IL, (1998). Sklaroff received her M.F.A. from Parsons School of Design, New York and her B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design.
