Born in Miami, Florida in 1990, artist Nicanor Sanchez has attended Gateway since 2012.
As a gifted young artist, Sanchez produces skillful designs that are rich with content. Polite and soft-spoken, Sanchez imparts a caring quality to all his work. In a relatively short span of time, Sanchez has established a reputation for creating fine quality folk art in fiber, paint, wood, and practically all media that he explores. Sanchez derives inspiration for his art from numerous sources such as music, movies and other pop culture media, yet remains grounded in his Dominican and Latino background and family life.
Sanchez’s art work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanawaza, Japan, the Open Door Gallery in Boston, MA, Drive – by Projects in Watertown, MA and the Gateway Gallery.
