About This Artist
Known for her iconic, abstract geometric style, artist Sandra Fettingis creates timeless, site-specific patterns for public art projects such as murals and installations across the nation. Her elegant, harmonious works thoughtfully integrate art with the surrounding built and natural environments. She combines a careful study of a location and its social fabric with creative problem solving to generate meditative yet dynamic patterns often nodding to plant life with keen attention to detail and craftswomanship.
Born and raised in Chicago, by South American artist parents, Sandra studied at the Art Center College of Design, earned a BA from Columbia College Chicago, and currently lives and works in Denver, CO. Since 2007, when she painted her first mural in Chicago, she has created more than 80 large-scale artworks for public and private collections. Sandra’s award-winning installation for the Colorado Convention Center, I know that you that I know, completed in 2014, propelled her into the public-facing projects she makes today. Her projects include extensive large-scale murals as well as glass windscreens for RTD’s A and EFR Lines, in addition to a four-story tall, integrated LED and aluminum wall sculpture for Denizen Denver. Her work has been exhibited locally at the Denver Art Museum, nationally as part of several mural festivals, and internationally at the Sharjah Festival in the United Arab Emirates. Sandra has been featured in publications such as Forbes, Huffington Post, Chicago Sun-Times, Design Milk, Hyperallergic, and Modern in Denver. She has earned grants from both the City of Chicago and Denver and is an alumni of RedLine, Denver’s artist residency program.
