Marco Sánchez is a Mexican-born artist based out in El Paso, Texas. He attended and received his B.F.A. from the University of Texas at El Paso with a double concentration in Painting and Printmaking. His work ranges from his relationship with his mentors and peers alike, to culture background and Mexican folklore, and is most recently exploring the notion of immigrant identity plays in society as a result of the current political climate in the United States.
He has worked primarily in the Southwestern United States, he has also participated in residencies throughout Mexico, including City, Michoacan, Oaxaca, and most recently Queretaro. Sánchez also teaches printmaking classes and workshops at the El Paso Museum of Art and will be participating in a community-engaging month-long residency in June of 2019.
