33 Collaborative was founded by Sofia Ramirez and Alexandra Seneca who met in 2017 while pursuing a Master’s degree in Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, New York. They immediately bonded over the shared desire to establish a communal space that encourages the flow of ideas and provides opportunities for local, emerging Latinx artists to thrive.
Sofia is 33 Collaborative’s Director of Operations with the primary responsibility of daily and financial management. Hailing from the West Coast, Sofia has been engaged with the Los Angeles art scene for some time. Sofia obtained her start in the business through her work at multiple art galleries in Los Angeles. She had the opportunity to gain sales experience with regard to the luxury items market. After earning a Business Management degree at Woodbury University in Los Angeles she moved to New York City.
