Jesse J. Ruiz

Jesse J. Ruiz is a bi-racial, lesbian artist from San Antonio, TX who paints, draws and makes videos. For Luminaria 2018, Ruiz presented a short animation called Color Coded, which is adapted from a comic she created, Mixed. Color Coded explored the cultural significance of colors and was inspired by a Gloria E. Anzaldúa piece. Mixed is a semi-autobiographical and fictional comic book about the complexities of bicultural, biracial, womxn and queer identity in the Latinx and Asian-American communities.
