- Francisco Echo Eraso Jr.
Francisco Eraso is a Colombian-American interdisciplinary artist, writer and performer. His work navigates the overlaps of trans liberation, decolonizing latinidad and disability justice through magical realism and the color gold. Eraso draws from traditional Colombian and queer-crip DIY ornamentation and craft in order to mourn and heal from the violences of colonial extraction.
He has received a BA/BFA in Visual Studies and Fine Arts from the New School. He is an upcoming Artist in Residence at the Textile Arts Center. His work has been presented at a variety of venues including The Flux Factory, Franklin Street Works, The Sheila C. Johnson Gallery among others.
Francisco currently lives in Brooklyn and works as an administrator and organizer for Third Root Community Health Center.
