Josie Sosa

Josie Sosa was born in 1973, and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has attended Gateway Arts since 1996.

Sosa is a unique artist who fills surfaces with drawings of distorted human forms often wearing what she identifies as ‘large hats.  Sosa’s compositions develop texture as she forcefully applies pen to paper, layering her marks which together build recognizable forms a people and text.

Sosa has participated in exhibitions in the Gateway Gallery, and Copacabana and Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers in New York, NY, and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanawaza, Japan.

Sosa was the recipient of the 2015 Yohei Nishimura Award from BiG-i Art Project in Osaka, Japan.
