Nico Antuna Cooper is an electronic producer, poet and multi-media artist currently residing in El Paso, Texas. He is also a curator and studio artist at Casa Ortiz Gallery in Socorro, Texas.
His work explores the visceral reality of the borderland seen through abstraction and surrealism of the Catholic eye and the color of his skin under the summer sun. Merging ancient religious symbolism with modern techniques including abstract splashes and street-style stencils, he brings together inspiration from contemporary art and the mysticism of the desert. He has traveled the world far and wide, and completed ancient pilgrimages including the Camino de Santiago in Spain.
An accomplished producer, musician, and published writer, he received his Master of Fine Arts from The University of Texas at El Paso’s bilingual program in Creative Writing, working together with some of the best emerging talent from across Latin America and Spain. His paintings serve as canvases and album artwork for his techno productions and acoustic music duo Fragile Balance.
