School of Art Alumnus Karlito Miller Espinosa (MFA, Illustration +Design, ’19) was featured on Arizona Public Media‘s Arizona Illustrated this week.
He explores themes of politics, migration, regional history, capitalism, and institutional violence through sculpture, traditional oil painting, and muralism. His work intertwines field research, personal narratives of a multinational upbringing with representations from the visual canon of art history to expose contradictions of power, authority, and social structure. Miller Espinosa graduated from the MFA program at the University of Arizona in 2019 and was a studio program resident for the prestigious Whitney Independent Studies Program in 2019-2020. You can see his work on the north side of the Joseph Gross Gallery at the University of Arizona and in the Kasser Family Wing of Latin American Art at the Tucson Museum of Art.
