Artist Alejandro Macias' art has been driven by his Mexican-American identity and the current social-political climate. Born and raised in Brownsville, Texas along the U.S./Mexico border, he uses his work to address themes of heritage, immigration and ethnicity, which are set in contrast to his critical engagement with the assimilation and acculturation process often referred to as “Americanization.”
