About the Artwork:
“This painting is part of my ‘Alice in Wonderland’ reinterpretation – I’m retelling it as a sister story set in a fantastical African setting. I have a section on my website for my other Alice stuff, if folks want to check that out.” – Mia Araujo
About the Artist:
I am an Argentine-American artist, born and raised in Los Angeles.
I am fascinated by the multi-faceted complexity that makes each person unique. I believe that all individuals contain an entire universe within them, which is invisible to the naked eye. My work concentrates on giving shape to the unseen forces within my subjects– their thoughts, memories, emotions, and complex histories. These qualities fit together to form a vast, rich inner-landscape of identity and mythology for my characters.
In May 2007, I graduated as valedictorian from Otis College of Art and Design, with a BFA in Illustration and a minor in Creative Writing. I have shown my work in prominent galleries across the US and around the world. My work has been published in Suggestivism, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz, Imagine FX, Spectrum 16-20, Society of Illustrators LA, Blue Canvas, Infected by Art, Miroir Magazine, Creep Machine, and the Creative Quarterly.
