""This piece is about embracing your subconscious- dreams, desires, feelings that people try to hide about themselves out of shame and fear...there are submerged parts of each of us that we've hidden away. Perhaps we are afraid to live too deeply so as not to be hurt, and we miss out on so much beauty and wonder.
This piece also explores my love for everything aquatic- deep sea diving, ocean wildlife, merpeople (there are even squid-people!)...and how similar outer space and the deep ocean can be. Both are great metaphors for this untapped part of ourselves that we should brave and explore from time to time." - Mia Araujo

I am an Argentine-American artist, born and raised in Los Angeles.
I have long been 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, Imagine FX, Spectrum 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Society of Illustrators LA, Blue Canvas, Infected by Art, Miroir Magazine, and the Creative Quarterly.
