About The Artist
This debut RUN from Mia Araujo is part of our collaboration with curator and 1xRUN regular Nathan Spoor highlighting select works from the recent Suggestivism show at Bold Hype Gallery.
"Each of my pieces has a unique story to it- I wanted this one to feel ghostly, with the sands of time still caked on it, like a hundred-year-old photograph. I wanted to create a therapeutic yet haunting image to get myself through some dark times, in order to take strength from it. My ideas always come from a personal place, and I hope others can connect with the piece, if they are going through something similar." - Mia Araujo
Each piece in this RUN will be uniquely hand-embellished by Mia Araujo, check details of the hand-embellishing reflecting in the light in photos 2, 3 and 4 and more.
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Mia Araujo and 1xRUN.
Read on below as we talk with Mia Araujo about her debut RUN, past influences and how this intricate delicate piece was constructed in this installation of the 1xRUN Thru Interview.
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.
