Soma, Trickster & Myself: David D. Oquendo
Located at the brand-new Messier Gallery, third floor Robeson Campus Center. Refer to the Main Gallery on the first floor for directions or a map.
David D. Oquendo leads his audience into a world populated with characters of indefinite human-animal-plant-fungus origin, each signifying a facet of Oquendo’s philosophy and exploration of religion, culture, and personal growth. Much of Oquendo’s work functions in this multidimensional manner: ringing with pop culture and commercial imagery, yet simultaneously engaging questions that have remained relevant throughout the history of human experience. Oquendo received his BA from Rutgers University in 2009 and his MFA in painting from Montclair State University in 2012. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at Solo(s) Project House and exhibitions in Manhattan, London, Newark, and Montclair. He is the first artist to exhibit in the Paul Robeson Galleries’ Messier Gallery, a mural space on the third floor of the Robeson Campus Center.
