Jose Lozano is a multimedia artist who is considered a principal in the Los Angeles Latino arts scene. His figurative drawings, paintings, and mixed media works transform everyday scenarios into humorous and satirical subject matter. His playful style and curiosity give his work a mischievous and childlike quality. Combining social issues such as identity, cultural erasure, and cultural amnesia with comedic elements makes his work approachable. This accessibility creates an entry point for the viewer to imagine themselves in a scenario that may be unfamiliar and foreign while challenging a dialogue of understanding and tolerance.
Jose Lozano received his Master of Fine Arts degree from California State University, Fullerton. His drawings and paintings have been exhibited widely at venues that include the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, The Hammer Museum at the University of California, Los Angeles, Orange County Museum of Contemporary Art, Patricia Correia Gallery, Self Help Graphics and Art in Los Angeles, California and Avenue 50 Studio, Inc in Los Angeles, California. He has received many awards including a J. Paul Getty Mid-Career Grant in Painting and a California Arts Council Grant for Drawing and Painting.
