About our Juror:
“Ruben Nieto, (born in Guantajuato, Mexico) is a UT Dallas doctoral candidate and artist in residence at Centraltrak. He has re-imagined his childhood love for comic books with a new engaging perspective translated through his works of art. He transforms the comic book into highly energetic and visceral paintings which re-contextualize the imagery. He spent hours researching the history of comic books both from a political and creative perspective, the history of text, Andy Warhol, and techniques of Master painters like Millet.” ~ Arts and Culture Magazine interview
