Carlos Rojas

Carlos is a Mexican-born artist who lives and works in Montreal, Quebec and Calgary, Alberta. His research is about how identity is impacted by migration; specifically, it is about how his own identity was transformed as a result of installing his practice in Canada. He uses ceramics, painting, stop-motion animation, glass, and metals to communicate his ideas. His work is inspired by pop, contemporary, and Mexican culture; folklore; myths; politics; and religion. He holds a BFA in Painting and Drawing from Concordia University and a law degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. He is currently an MFA (2017) candidate in ceramics at the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary. His recent shows include Gallerie D’Este, Art Mur, and Maison de Culture Parc-Extension in Montreal, ACAD in Calgary, and Art Vallarta in Mexico. He published a portfolio in Les Escrits (2016) and was interviewed by Catalyst Magazine and Shaw TV.
