Apogee presents our first Visual Arts Overshare,* from Issue Two: “EXTRAÑO,” by Esteban Cabeza de Baca.
Esteban Cabeza de Baca
Oil on canvas, 12″ × 9″
ESTEBAN CABEZA DE BACA is a painter born in San Ysidro, California, but raised in Tijuana, Mexico. He received his BFA from the Cooper Union in 2010. His paintings explore what America looked like before it was colonized. This choice in subject matter isn’t because the modern world is bad; in some ways, the modern world is far too good. But he explores wild and wasted virtues from the past. Esteban is the recipient of the Medici Foundation Grant, William Randolph Hearst Scholarship for excellence in painting.
