Miguel Angél Monzón was born in San Bernardino, CA in 1989 but has lived most of his life in Phoenix, AZ.  He graduated summa cum laude at Arizona State University with a BFA in Intermedia in 2016. His work often deals with his experience as a first generation Mexican-American and the language barrier within that context. He works in traditional as well as non-traditional media and employs the strategies that are best suited for the subject matter he is pursuing. He, like early modern artists is dedicated experimentation in a process that is forever evolving. Monzón is well versed in media production from conceptualization, shooting, to post production and is invested in drawing influence from this type of media and it’s processes into his painting/printmaking and vise versa.
