José Joaquín Figueroa is a multidisciplinary artist born in Caracas and based in Oakland, California. Figueroa uses post-modern strategies to create works of art that reflect the fragility of fleeting moments, the complications of interposed identities, and the impossibility of a singular perspective. Figueroa has exhibited at Southern Exposure, Berkeley Art Museum and Embark Gallery, all in the Bay Area; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Bogotá, Colombia; Longwood Arts Project in New York, among others. He attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009, received his B.F.A. in Arts from Cooper Union in 2014 and his M.F.A. from U.C Berkeley in 2016. He studied painting at the Armando Reveron School of Visual Arts (UNEARTE) and developed a photographic practice at Roberto Mata Photography Workshop and the Nelson Garrido Organization. He is currently an affiliated artist at the Headlands Center of the Arts in Sausalito, California.
