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.

My work explores the internal dialogues that we have with ourselves which includes our emotions, thoughts, and memories. I find these dialogues to be the most fascinating part of being human which is why I choose to explore it through my art practice. As an interdisciplinary artist, I work with analog photography, 19th-century alternative processes, fibers, and printmaking. My use of photographic imagery is a means to visualize my own thoughts or visions that run through my mind and allow me to understand myself and the human condition better.
