Jose Guadalupe Sanchez III

Jose Guadalupe Sanchez III is an interdisciplinary artist with an emphasis in painting. His work is an investigation of the interactions between different value systems found throughout Los Angeles, with a focus on intelligence, legitimacy, and authority. A driving question in his practice asks “how as artists can we make work that, on the one hand, validates the neglected experiences of the people we care about (i.e., through direct positive representation and intervention) and, on the other, be a critical reflection on those structures that created the conditions of making a people socially, politically, economically invisible?” His projects manifest as pedagogical interventions as an arts educator for marginalized youth, paintings, video, documentary video, performance, and his socially engaged art practice.
