Oscar Moreno makes prints. He immersed himself in printmaking at UCSC while ruminating on the History of Art and Visual Culture and studying Education. Born in East Los Angeles, Oscar’s Mexican American heritage and religious upbringing led him to study the histories which set into motion the age of the Fifth Sun. Building on Aztec mythology and Catholic tradition, he invites viewers to indulge in historical reflection and ritual.
The Sesnon Gallery’s annual Irwin Scholarship Award exhibition showcases some of UCSC’s most promising young artists working in painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation, video and digital media.
