His family moved to America when he was in elementary school, after his father relocated for work. Since then, Francisco Moreno has learned to adapt to American culture without losing too much of his Mexican heritage in the process. And this month, he’ll take the Oral Fixation stage to talk about how this balance affects the artwork he creates in “Destination America.”
Francisco Moreno was born in Mexico City in 1986, and moved to Arlington, Texas in 1992. In 2012 he graduated from the Masters in Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design with the prestigious Presidential Scholar Tuition award. Moreno’s work has been exhibited in New York City; Providence, Rhode Island; Stowe, Vermont; Concord, Massachusetts; Dallas, Texas; and San Juan, Puerto Rico.
