Authentic Wow Feature
Sandra Shashou – UK-based, Brazilian multimedia artist
Sandra’s first exhibitions as an artist took place in São Paulo, in the building she grew up in with her parents. There, in the lobby of the multi-storey structure, she would present and share her work with all the tenants, already anticipating recognition and appreciation for her paintings. At the age of merely 5 years old, Sandra spent all her time drawing and painting, creating around herself a space that would become her studio, occupying a room in her parent’s apartment. And even though it was not all ‘plain sailing’ to realise her dream of becoming an artist, she knew then that art was her talent, her vocation – and that it would become her world.
