Jorge Mujica

Jorge Mujica (B.1982) Mexico City, Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Mujica’s interest in art began when he traveled with his father, a photojournalist for the Spanish language newspaper “La Opinion”. From there, Mujica was able to mature a critical eye and formulate independent ideas about culture. This influenced him to seek an undergraduate degree in Political Science and Art History from California State University Bakersfield in 2008, A MA in Visual and Critical Studies from the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago in 2010, and a MFA in Painting from Yale University. After completing his final degree in 2012, Mujica relocated to Hollywood CA, where he began to work as an independent artist and curator. In 2014 he established a studio in Long Beach, CA and in 2017 co-founded Creative Arts Coalition to Transform Urban Space (CACtTUS), a donation based project space for emerging contemporary artists in a live/work store front in Downtown Long Beach. He and his partner exhibit monthly installations by invited local, national, and international artists. He has shown at the Museum of Latin American Art (Long Beach, CA), Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum (San Bernardino), Steven Zevitas Gallery (Boston, MA), Yeah Maybe (Minneapolis, MN.), Basement Projects (Santa Ana, CA) @Studio_Mujica
