Hecho Docuseries

Chico Capitán Sierra

Growing up in El Paso, Chico Sierra began crossing borders early. As a Mexican-American, he knows that sometimes borders can be fixed and severe, like crossing back and forth between Mexico and the United States. But oftentimes, borders are blurry or even non-existent. Sierra has moved from the United States, to Mexico, Canada, Germany, the Philippines and back. He is conscience of the flux of cultural diversity. That, in combination with the theme of blurred borders is expressed in the different mediums of Sierra’s art. He is also a member of the Latino Writers Collective in KC.

As a force to be reckoned within the Art & Design world.
