Faculty Member Lorenzo Hurtado ('07) in Latin Times

Feb 21, 2014
Spotlight Category: Faculty

Faculty member and MFA alumnus Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia, who recently showed new work at L.A.'s CB1 Gallery, was interviewed by Latin Times about his career and education.

“I come from a poor working class immigrant family that never went art events. Everyone in our neighborhood knew how to make things, there were seamstresses, carpenters, blacksmiths, mechanics, construction workers, etc., so I grew up with the mentality that you can do it if you want to. But my path was set for engineering, being good at math and science, until I took a drawing elective. It challenged my preconceptions of what logic is, the value of illogical actions, and engaged me in deep ways."

"I went to Otis to study with Roy Dowell and John Knight. They are the biggest influences on my work and ways of approaching an art practice."
