Chris Rivas

Chris was born to a Latino father and a Caucasian mother. His experience as a mixed person involved witnessing the difficult cultural differences his parents and families had to endure, both at home as well as with the outside world. He has never felt fully accepted or represented by either ethnic group and as a result found himself strongly identifying with the indefinite character of LA. He uses painting to investigate ambiguity and dualities attributed to the body, while continuing to contemplate the vast intersectionality cultural struggle within his own identity.
