Josue Esau was brought to the US as a child where he is able to pursue opportunities that would have been unavailable to him in Honduras. He was introduced to the arts through SAY Sí, an internationally recognized non-profit, which focuses on the development of artistic and leadership skills in young adults. He is currently working towards his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Southwest School of Art, and hence his work is steadily growing more conceptual and critical in nature. In early 2017, he was nearly deported, and this was a catalyst for him to develop a praxis that challenges national narratives and the need for borders. Josue’s status as a DACA recipient and the accompanying circumstances are the primary impetus for his work.
