M.F.A. Art Studio, 2017
Vincent Pacheco was raised in a family of artists, gangbangers, and drug dealers in California’s Bay Area. After becoming the first one in his family to graduate from college, Pacheco spent the next 15 years of his life working in the American advertising industry, hustling his way up the corporate ladder. Having worked for clients such as Disney, Marvel, Yahoo, Microsoft, 20th Century Fox, and Paramount Pictures, Pacheco threw in the towel and decided to seek a life that was dedicated towards spiritual growth rather than monetary gain. He now lives in a cabin in the woods, no longer works for corporations, and is actively processing the ideas of family, place, and personal history. Pacheco is a mixed-media artist, living and working in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California.
