Digital artist Federico Cuatlacuatl, MFA candidate at Bowling Green University, Ohio, creates works that have an “emphasis in visually and theoretically representing sociopolitical issues [which] also recognizes the gap between theory and praxis, and therefore, bridges both approaches by bringing social engagement” into his pieces.
Cuatlacuatl grew up as an undocumented immigrant in the United States. Through reflecting on this and “ upon the current realities of Hispanic immigrant experiences through the dual lenses of cultural heritage and contemporary influences,” Cuatlacuatl says he uses them “as a means to rediscover and reinterpret cultural identity.” Fusing these subjects into videos and digital animations to create works that combine the past, present, and future into one space.
