Pepe Coronado, Austin, TX, Recast, 2020 Serigraph

My practice consists of two–dimensional mixed media pieces and site-specific installations. The work engages both the Caribbean and American cultural landscape both in its content and materiality. I like to marry the language of painting and drawing with elements that reference traditional arts and crafts.

I have repeatedly engaged and woven the iconography of African-derived religions with personal, historical, and colonial narratives.

I want to open a space where personal and collective memories can be revisited as places of cultural resistance and resilience but also as a door to the universality of my and the viewer’s experience.
