CAMILO VILLA is a Colombian interdisciplinary artist, designer, social justice activist, and educator based in Oakland, California. He is committed to unveiling oppressive systems to recreate alternative communities. His love for craft and performance intersect to communicate symbolic narratives that encourage conversation about the role of art within social justice. His art practice and educational research addressees the liberation of Queer Latinx communities, the violent erasure of social leaders in his home country Colombia, and the journey of Latin American migrants crossing the US-Mexico Border. Camilo’s work has been exhibited at Senator Scott Wiener’s Office as part of the We Belong-Pertenecemos exhibit and at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery as part of the Hispanic Heritage exhibit. His work has been featured in magazines, such as Voyage LA , NEWAGE, and Latin:SF.
