The Artist

Juan Sanchez

Juan Sánchez is part of a generation of artists who in the 1980s to 1990s began exploring questions of ethnic, racial and national identity in their work, be it through painting, video, performance or installation. Sánchez is known for producing mixed media works that address issues of Puerto Rican life in the U.S. and on the island. Sanchez continues to combine painting and photography with other media clippings and found objects to confront America’s political policies and social practices concerning his parents’ homeland of Puerto Rico. Sánchez often addresses Puerto Rico’s battle for independence and the numerous obstacles facing disadvantaged Puerto Ricans in the U.S.
