Statement

Omar Pimienta (Tijuana-San Diego) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses the lens of personal-geography while working with media such as photography, video, installations, and text, among others, in order to explore social landscapes, collective and individual histories, and the spaces within/between the imagination and the image. He received his B.A in Latin American Studies from San Diego State University in 2006, and is currently an MFA candidate in the Visual Arts department at the University of California, San Diego. He has published two books of poetry, Primera Persona Ella (Ediciones de La Esquina, 2004) and La Libertad: Ciudad de Paso (CECUT, 2006), which has recently been re-edited by Aullido Libros (Huelva, Spain).
