Caleb Yono is an interdisciplinary artist working to mediate discursive signs and affects of identity, class, and sexuality through representations of bodies charged with queer potential and tendencies.
Through his practice, Caleb hopes to create relational ecologies of image and desire that elicit an estrangement of what is expected of the human through the shaping and rearranging of his own discursive mask. The result of Caleb’s work is a network of interdisciplinary gestures aimed at asserting "queer feeling structures” as momentary displacements of a harmful normative society. Caleb works to exorcise the fragmented trauma/exhaustion of the everyday.
He received his MFA in painting and drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015.
