Solange Sarria is an interdisciplinary artist and salon owner of Sodada Salon. She studied painting and sculpture at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, working with a long list of mediums; oil, watercolor, ink, metal smithing, mold making, wood and ceramics.
After a short academic break in order to gain financial independence by achieving her Cosmetology license, Sarria continued her studies at Florida International University. Inspired by her new career as a salon owner and hairstylist, she received her BFA with a focus in assemblage sculpture.
Using found objects to create visual sentences allows Sarria the ability to work within a variety of mediums, problem solving their harmonious connections in an improvisational manner, streaming from her subconscious mind.
‘As she continues to grow into her artistic practice, Sarria aims to explore the legitimacy of our own constrained standards of beauty… (she) uncovers the artificiality inherent in the modern beauty industry and turns it on its head.’
