  • Sandra Araújo is a digital artist that spent endless hours shooting at monsters and strolling through mazes. So, it only felt natural for her to evolve through an experimental and explorative process of the visual culture of video games and popular gif files. Also feeds on social media platforms to engage her animations into the depths of gameplay plots. She still plays old school computer games.  s-ara.net
