Sofia Echa was born in 1992 in Vladivostok, Russia and settled in New York City in 2013 to continue her pursuit of a career in art after she received a bachelor degree in Economics and Japanese studies at Federal University of Vladivostok, Russia. She graduated from the National Academy School in New York. Before that, Sofia studied fine arts in Art School in Vladivostok and in Cambridge School Of Visual & Performing Arts, Cambridge, UK.

Her works are in private collections in the United States and Russia. She is honored to have donated work to the 2015 National Academy Gala auction honoring National Academician, Eric Fischl, with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and to the Bailey House Auction in 2016, 2017, and 2020. In September 2015, she had her first solo show in the Center of Contemporary Art Sol’ in Vladivostok, Russia, and in 2017 – the first solo show in New York (Sonia Gechtoff gallery, National Academy Museum and School). In September 2018 her work was auctioned off at the Phillips auction house in New York.
