Sokia, pseudonym for Solange Kirschen, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young girl, she already showed a great talent for drawing. As a result of the unstable and threatening political situation in Videla's Argentina, she and her family relocated from Buenos Aires to Brussels.

Solange was a student at the Lycée Français and studied sculpture at the Académie des Beaux Arts. It was obvious she had an artistic future ahead of her. She specialised in drawing and painting, the latter becoming her great passion. Sokia lives and works in the Netherlands.

Her paintings have a cosmopolitan and mystical streak. Her forceful brush strokes are immediately recognisible. Earthly tinges with strong contrasting colours have become Sokia's trademark. Her work is exponential for the seeking, 21st century human being. In 2005, her extraordinary collection was exhibited for the first time in the Netherlands.
