Bedel Tiscareño



Bedel Tiscareño is a Mexican American painter and sculptor from Las Vegas, NV. His work transmutes established historical narratives into fantastical situations conjured from subversive ideologies and puerile make-believe. By combining archetypes from ancient and contemporary political, social and emotional landscapes, Tiscareño creates discursive narratives and incongruous compositions that both satirize and question the inconsistencies of the status quo.

Bedel Tiscareño’s works have been shown nationally and internationally in galleries and art fairs. He holds a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and attended Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles, CA and Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA. He received a juris doctor degree from the City University of New York School of Law in 2013. He currently lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio.
