Jorge Ariel Escobar (b. 1994) is a photomedia and interdisciplinary artist currently based in Richmond, VA. He holds a BFA in studio art with a photography emphasis from James Madison University. As an undergraduate student, he received a CVPA Research Grant and participated in a photography studio in Prague. His work explores the internal dialogues that we have with ourselves, which includes our emotions, thoughts, and memories. As an interdisciplinary artist, Escobar works with analog photography, 19th-century alternative processes, fibers, and printmaking. His use of photographic imagery is a means to visualize his own thoughts or visions that run through his mind and allow him to better understand himself and the human condition.
