Ruben Ulises Rodriguez Montoya (Born 1989 in Parral, MX)
creates beings that are a fantastic becoming that center around anthologies and social issues concerning border culture, abjection, adaptation, and mestizaje aided by Speculative Fiction, Nahualismo, Sci-Fi, and the Labor of his family. His work hybridizes and creates parallels between land, the human, and the animal as a way to investigate the process in which violence eradicates, erases, and erodes communities of color. Guides that rest and shapeshift between different hybrid states of; the mundane, the terrible, and the sacred.
