About Esteban Cabeza de Baca

Esteban Cabeza de Baca’s childhood hometown of San Ysidro, CA effectively straddled the US–Mexico border, as did his family. During the 1990s to early 2000s, Cabeza de Baca lived in west Denver, getting acculturated to the Chicano community in all its rich diversity. He employs a broad range of techniques in his paintings and sculptures to confound myopic perspectives of American history. Often set in the landscape of the American Southwest, his work depicts important moments where social, political, environmental, and familial narratives intertwine.  

Cabeza de Baca’s recent solo exhibitions include Alma, Garth Greenan Gallery in New York City; Let Earth Breathe at the Crystal Bridges Museum, Arkansas; Life is one Drop in Limitless Oceans…, at Kunstfort, Vijfhuizen, Netherlands. Cabeza de Baca’s work is in numerous collections such as Harvard University, MCA San Diego and Beth de Woody collection. Esteban graduated from Denver School of the Arts in 2003 then earned a BFA from The Cooper Union in 2010 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2014. He currently lives and works between the US borderlands and Queens, NY, and is represented by Garth Greenan Gallery.
