Drawing from his experiences living on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, Enrique Chagoya (b. 1953, Mexico) juxtaposes secular, popular, and religious symbols in order to address the ongoing cultural clash between the United States, Latin America and the world at large. Recently his work has addressed issues on immigration and the economic recession. He earned a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MA and MFA from the University of California, Berkeley. Chagoya is currently Professor of Art at Stanford University. His work has been shown internationally and is represented in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the De Young Museum, the LA County Museum of Art, the National Museum of American Art, the Des Moines Art Center, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the New York Public Library.
