Brandon Barón

Artist:  Brandin Barón is a San Francisco-based visual artist. After receiving his M.F.A from the University of California, San Diego, he has worked professionally as a fine and digital artist, graphic designer, costume designer for theatrical productions, and design scholar. From 2006-2018, he was a Professor of Design at The University of California, Santa Cruz.


Artist Statement: I’m interested in the trajectory of how gay male bodies have been depicted by artists, designers, and the media, and how looking back onto these sexualized portrayals with a retrograde lens can create tensions in the manner with which we can now gauge their sociopolitical progress. My compositions are “staged” through the process of layering my photographic and hand-rendered imagery with stock photography and digital textures. I utilize experimental printmaking techniques, especially in the play between different surface qualities of ink/paint/pigment. Final prints are then embellished with hand-applied media, including: ink, gouache, pastel, acrylic and/or enamel.
