Fidencio Fifield-Perez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but was raised in North Carolina after his family migrated. His current work examines immigration, the drug war, and socio­economic issues affecting Mexico. In his work, Fifield-Perez manipulates newspaper cuttings, maps, paper, and painting surfaces to refer to the crafts and customs taught to him as a toddler in Oaxaca – ones used to celebrate festivals and mourn the dead. For Fifield-Perez these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present.

Fidencio Fifield-Perez is based out of Iowa.
