Jaime Mendoza, signed by author
Jaime Mendoza was born in Chicago, Il. in 1974. In 1998, Jaime earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Arts from Northeastern Illinois University. In 2002 he earned a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Concerned with issues of immigration, ethnicity and borders, Jaime uses a variety of mediums such as video, photography, and mixed media installations-all of which fuse the politics of contemporary urban culture with idealistic meditations on aesthetics, history, and identity. Most recently, Jaime was awarded a one year grant from The National Association of Latino Arts and Culture (NALAC) to publish a book of drawings, “La Chamba: Drawings by Jaime Mendoza.”
