Jorge Ariel Escobar (b. 1994) is a queer/Latinx image-maker who holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he was an Ed-GRS Graduate Fellow. His work focuses on themes of intimacy, desires, and relationships between queer/gay men using his own experiences as the basis of his research. Primarily working with photography, his work crosses between digital, analog, and alternative processes to visualize these concepts. He has attended workshops at Penland School of Craft, Anderson Ranch Art Center, and has been an artist in residence at AZULE. As a solo artist, he has exhibited with VALET Gallery and the Jane Sandelin Gallery both in Richmond, VA. Other credits include group exhibitions at RI Center for Photographic Arts (Providence, RI), the Trout Museum of Art (Appleton, WI), the Photographic Arts Center (Denver, CO), Perspective Gallery (Evanston, IL) and the Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins, CO), where his work received an Honorable Mention as part of their Center Forward 2022 exhibition.
