Juan Sánchez is an influential American Artist and one of the most important Nuyorican cultural figures to emerge in the second half of the 20th century. Born to migrant working-class Puerto Rican parents in Brooklyn, New York, Sánchez earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The Cooper Union School of Art in 1977, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Mason Gross School of the Arts of Rutgers University in 1980. A politically committed artist, he was inspired early on by the political teachings of the Young Lords generation of artists that include such figures as Coco Fusco, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, Pepon Osorio, and Papa Calo, who in the 1980s and ‘90s explored questions of ethnic, racial, and national identity in their work.Sánchez’s mixed-media paintings, prints, photographs, and video installations have been exhibitied throughout the United States, Latin-America, Europe, and Egypt. Sánchez is a Professor of Art at Hunter College, City University of New York.
