Sandra Cinto is a Brazilian contemporary artist, known for her sculpture, drawing, paintings, and installations. Born in Santo Andre, Brazil in 1968, Cinto is currently living and working in São Paulo, Brazil. She graduated with a degree in art education, from Faculdades Integradas Teresa D’Ávila (FATEA) in Santo André, Brazil in 1990. Her artwork mixes installations, paintings, and detailed pen drawings.
Throughout her career, Sandra Cinto has developed a rich vocabulary of symbols and lines to create lyrical landscapes and narratives that hover between fantasy and reality. Using drawing as her point of departure, the artist renders intricate and mesmerizing environments of turbulent seascapes, violent rainstorms, and celestial skies that frequently engage with the surrounding architecture to a disorienting effect, creating the illusion of a weightless, spiraling universe. Evoking stories of human hardship and redemption, these fantastical landscapes serve as a metaphor for the human odyssey, while also pushing the limits and possibilities of drawing.
