Esteban Cabeza de Baca (b.1985) grew up in San Ysidro, one of the largest border towns between the United States and Mexico and the site of last year’s migrant caravan crisis. Esteban’s work emerges from his Mestizo culture in the Southwest United States. He has attended many residencies including the Carrizozo AIR, Drawing Center’s Open Sessions, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, the LMCC Workspace Program and the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program. His works are among public and private collections worldwide, including Harvard University, The Netherlands Bank, Stern Collection, and De Heus Collection. He holds a BFA from The Cooper Union and an MFA from Columbia University where he currently teaches painting. Esteban’s first NYC solo show “Worlds Without Borders” at Boers Li Gallery was featured in NYTimes as an Artist To Watch Now. He lives and works in Queens, NY.
