Cody Jimenez is an artist from Las Cruces, New Mexico and a recent alumnus of LCAD’s MFA program in Painting (2017).
Jimenez has been featured in multiple publications, including Juxtapoz Art + Culture Magazine. He has exhibited in group shows throughout southern California and the southwest, including Santa Fe, NM.
Imbued with colorful animism, mysticism and totemism, Jimenez’s paintings are primarily about humankind’s mercurial relationship with the natural world. Endlessly inquisitive and explorative, Jimenez uses animalistic forms and vibrant psycho-emotive colors to aid viewers in understanding his paintings and the impact of anthropocentrism on the world at large.
