BMoCA is pleased to present the second in a new series of Expert Talks in collaboration with Shark’s Ink., the nationally-renowned print studio in Lyons, Colorado. Shark’s Ink. at BMoCA are casual conversations between Master printer Bud Shark, his wife and fellow artist Barbara Shark, and one of the resident artists at Shark’s Ink.
The conversation on August 21, will feature painter and print-maker Enrique Chagoya.
Enrique Chagoya (b. 1953, Mexico City) and Bud Shark have been working together since 1997 and have produced 19 printed editions and many monotypes together. Chagoya draws inspiration from his experiences living on both sides of the U.S./Mexico border in the late 70s and in Europe in the late 90s. He uses familiar pop icons to create deceptively friendly points of entry for the discussion of complex issues. Chagoya’s work has been shown nationally and internationally and can be found in the collections of many museums, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Chagoya currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.
Shark’s Ink. at BMoCA is sponsored by 15th Street Studio.
