Cindy Santos Bravo
Cindy Santos Bravo received her MFA in the Program of Art from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA. Upon her graduation she was invited to show internationally, and continues to participate in exhibitions that place emphasis on process and experimentation.

The visuals she creates are palimpsest in nature and range from montages of internet video clips to contextually specific designs in public spaces.
