Launching a Visual Arts career in Chicago at the age of 15, Sandra Antongiorgi has had the rare opportunity to study under illustrious and established muralists and artists. Known primarily for her gifted use of paint, and formation of concept, Antongiorgi has contributed to scores of murals that have dotted the Chicago cityscape in neighborhoods such as Pilsen, Humboldt Park, Hyde Park, Wicker Park, River West, Bridgeport and South Chicago. Her work has been showcased in museums and exhibitions throughout the city, including the School of the Art Institute and the National Museum of Mexican Art.  As a studio artist, Antongiorgi draws upon life experiences, power relationships, culture, boundaries, mysticism and spirituality. She is a champion of children's rights and works to expose the damage caused by family violence, incarceration and systematic marginalization. Sandra's work delves deeply into those struggles normally hidden from view. Her surreal imagery is engaging, powerful and thought-provoking.

Sandra Antongiorgi's passion for arts & education, combined with her dedication to philanthropy, makes her a frequent contributor to community arts projects. Antongiorgi has used her experiences to create and implement music and art initiatives rooted in diversity and inclusion. Many of these initiatives have served as models for programs at schools and community centers on a national level. Her work with Chicago Public Schools and the "After School Matters" Program, where she taught mural painting, drawing, studio painting, visual poetry and found object art creation, are all examples of the deep commitment and connection Sandra has to the youth and to her community. "Weaving Cultures", a mural collaboration between Sandra and fellow Chicago artist, Sam Kirk won the Chicago Readers, "Best Mural of 2017". The mural is unique in that it features a transgender Latina, serves to bridge the gap between divided neighborhoods and honors underrepresented women of diverse cultures. In November of 2017, Sandra completed another large-scale mural in Chicago with Sam Kirk. This mural is a response to gentrification and displacement, paying homage to history, preserving the culture, identity and social vibrancy of the changing Logan Square neighborhood.
