Jairo Banuelos (b.1991, Los Angeles, California) uses drawing on his sculptures to push the idea that they can be made into three dimensional objects and show different perspectives.
He is influenced by personal experiences of being discriminated against and observations of others who receive similar or worse treatment. The journey to rediscover his cultural identity has become the core of his work. He is interested in how people's actions, ideas, and experiences leave a deep impact on others.
