About Sandra Cinto

In her intricately detailed drawings, paintings, and installations, Sandra Cinto presents mesmerizing, engulfing images of the sea, sky, and natural elements as visual metaphors for the odyssey of life. Journeys fascinate Cinto. Though she has produced small-scale works, she is best known for her room-filling installations, covering entire walls with her graphic renderings of roiling waves, twinkling stars, or pouring rain. Central to all of her work is the cycle of life—her own and that of the viewers immersed in her imagery.
