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, Martinez 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 Martinez these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present.
Fidencio Fifield-Perez is based out of Iowa and is currently completing the Galveston Artist Residency in Galveston, TX.
