About Eric de Llamas

Eric de Llamas is a Texas-based artist, originally from the Los Encinos neighborhood of the city of Corpus Christi. The south Texas environment surrounded the artist with imagery that informed him about Catholicism and life in the barrio.

Later in his childhood, he moved with his family to north Texas in the white suburbs of the Dallas metropolitan area. No longer surrounded by a Hispanic presence, the artist now lived in an area where the majority of the population was white. Exposure to the new cultural influences in Dallas while still a young adolescent led to a dichotomy between the two cultures; one that he continues to resolve within himself.

Eric's work has primarily focused on identity politics, making work that creates a commentary on Catholic symbolism, national identity, narco culture, high and low art, theology, and politics.
