About the event

Hector Barbosa is a San Antonio based artist. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at San Antonio and is currently an Art Educator for SAISD. He is an interdisciplinary artist that uses multiple mediums within two-dimensional space to blend personal experiences, religion, recurring locations, and the subconscious. “If you slow down and observe where you are, things start to look interesting. Your setting may be commonplace, but scenarios start playing in your head of what could happen in these locations (good or bad) and it can seem limitless. Everyday characters in these locations also become more intriguing.
These environments become my muse. I take these places, interpreting every location into an abstraction. Revisiting and reliving the same place but fabricating something different each time. Fighting the insanity of mundane daily routines. Seeing the links to discover more about myself and the world around me. Seeing myself more and more in others. Attempting to become more compassionate and empathetic through creating. A body of work that has helped me see the benefit of making the best of any given situation.”
