ME Hotel London, a home of art, culture, music and design is proud to announce the art residency of renowned artist Sophie Tea @sophieteaart in the hotel’s distinguished Marconi Lounge.
Sophie is a young UK artist who has made her name by breaking the traditional gallery route and selling thousands of paintings on her social media worldwide. After graduating with a first-class degree in Business, Sophie went on to start her entrepreneurial journey by developing a ‘Tinder for Art’ app. She began painting to fund this venture but soon found it more lucrative to pursue Sophie Tea Art.
Sophie now famously sells her signature abstract pieces within seconds to her loyal Instagram following and has turned over £1m in a single year. Boasting VIP fans and press coverage from Forbes and BBC to Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan, Sophie has sold out solo shows around the world often with up to 300 people queuing outside.
Determined to make art accessible to all, Sophie prides herself on ‘taking art virginities’ opening up original art to a customer base that may otherwise never thought it was possible to buy art. One of her most notable and unique accessibility methods is her ‘Payment plans’ which allowed customers from Instagram to pay over 12 months, with no interest and receive their art straight away. The quality of the work and the trust in the artist means Sophie has an impressive 50% repeat order rate.
Fast forward to now Sophie has studios, galleries and teams in both London and Sydney and a relentless demand for her artworks.
During the art residency at ME London, Sophie Tea will introduce her latest collection of 'Hearts'. This collection is a reminder to those that have struggled throughout the difficult months spent alone in lockdown that no matter what, we are loved and there is always love. The collection includes the originals of Sophie's latest double print drops, her most popular product 'Compliments' and one-off originals.
ME London will host the exhibition from July 8th to September 6th, 2021. Guests are welcome to view the artwork at Marconi Lounge daily between 10am and 8 pm.
