Josué Esaú

Josué Esaú Romero Velasquez was born in Honduras, raised in San Antonio, and currently lives in Chicago. He works through sculpture, archiving, and various media to confront the implications of being undocumented in this country, searching for ways to ground safety, home, and legacy for himself and the communities he loves. Josué holds a BFA from the Southwest School of Art, and an MFA from Columbia College Chicago.
