Jaime Carrejo is a multi-discipline artist and his projects involve painting, sculpture, video, and immersive installations that use layered materials such as mirrors, rusting oxidation paint, and colorful vinyl. Carrejo considers the layering of materials and imagery pivotal in exploring the collision of multi-hybrid identities and alterity that form complicated relationships.
He received his B.F.A from the University of Texas El Paso in 2001 and M.F.A. from the University of South Florida in 2007. His work is featured in periodicals, such as The New York Times, Art Forum, and Hyperallergic.
Selected exhibitions include Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place, Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO (2017), Identity, University of the Andes, Bogotá, Colombia (2014), Art & Poetics, Mahmoud Darwish Museum, Ramallah, Palestine (2014), and Diptych America: Private Spaces/Public Places, Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China (2013). He currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
