Raul Baltazar is a multidisciplinary artist with roots in the Xicano and Xicana activist community. He uses collage in his murals, sculpture and performances in an attempt to construct and deconstruct the rituals, myths and archetypes of indigenous cultures. His approach to public practice facilitates the cross pollination of cultural and contemporary art production.
Baltazar received his MFA in Public Practice and BFA in Sculpture and New Genres from Otis College of Art and Design. He has exhibited at various institutions throughout Los Angeles and internationally in Mexico, Columbia, Japan and Demark.
