Jaime Carrejo is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice and research explores alterity and it’s relationship to the ‘American Dream’. Carrejo creates works that reference Americanized versions of Mexican folk-art and iconography as an examination of hybrid identities. He is also interested in how the contexts of images and objects have evolved over time.
His professional experience includes time spent as a Visiting Professor at the College of Wooster in Wooster Ohio; Resident Artist at Redline, Denver, CO; and Chair of the Exhibition and Arts Committee at Redline. Carrejo's 2013 exhibition record includes Eotvos Lorad University, Budapest, Hungary; China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China; Dar al-Kalima College, Bethlehem, Palestine; Biennial of the Americas Denver, Colorado; and participation in a collaborative artist group video project, titled Neighborhood Watch, which is exhibited in national and international locations including El Paso, Texas, Paris, France and Mexico City, Mexico.
