Álvaro D. Márquez is an L.A.-based visual artist and part-time professor of Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies at California State University, Los Angeles. Raised in East Salinas, California, a community of migrant farm and working class laborers, his work explores questions of social, racial, and gender inequality by bridging “low brow” and “high art.” Especially inspired by comic books and visual forms of storytelling, his work engages questions about the self, history, and one’s place in it. He holds a B.A. in history from Brown University and an M.A. with emphasis in visual studies from the University of Southern California. In the Fall of 2017, Alvaro will begin an M.F.A. in Art, with emphasis in Printmaking, at California State University, Long Beach.
