LC Studio Tutto is an art and design team composed of Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel. The duo works collaboratively to create site-specific art—infusing spaces with life and identity to encourage a connection between people and their environments.
The team has worked with with municipalities, architects, designers, developers, and businesses, to translate feelings and ideas into works of site-specific visual art. LC Studio Tutto has created over 75 murals, custom paintings, and interactive installations. With each project they work closely with the client to produce a piece of art that reflects its surroundings and resonates with its audience.
Lacin and Christophel both grew up in Sacramento and have been friends since they were teenagers. As a team, they bring together their individual artistic strengths to create artwork that is rooted in abstract expression while furthering a defined narrative. Sofia and Hennessy design collaboratively from their Los Angeles and Central Coast studios, and fabricate artwork together on location throughout the country.
Hennessy Christophel, the daughter of an artist and a biologist, grew up with colored pencils in hand, surrounded by nature. With an interest in systems, cycles, and understanding how the world works, she looks for pattern, meaning, and story in her artwork. After graduating from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in fine art, with a focus on illustration and bookmaking, she started her career in public art. Now living in the Central Coast, Hennessy is continually inspired by the intricacies of nature and seeks to bring life and nuance to the built world.
Sofia sees all forms of her artwork as an investigation of beauty, believing that moments of melody exist in unlikely color harmonies and surprising texture layers. Whether she’s painting on a large-scale canvas, creating one-of-a-kind fine art jewelry, or a 14,000 square foot mural, her goal is to satisfy the eye. Sofia graduated with a fine arts degree from the University of California, Davis with a double major in Art Studio and Italian language. After studying art and Italian in Florence, Italy for a year, she returned to establish LC Studio Tutto in 2008. Sofia’s work can be seen throughout California and has been exhibited at Art Basil Miami Beach.
