26-year-old Jean Dawson is equal parts musician and visual artist. Half Mexican and half Black, he was raised in Tijuana and San Diego near the border. His love for music was ignited during his daily five hour treks across the Mexican / American border to attend school in the US. He came up listening to the rock and rap that his multicultural parents loved, as well as the Latin sounds that surrounded him. Raised by a single working class Mexican mother, he leaned into art and began challenging notions of hyper-masculinity that line Mexican and Black cultures. To this day, his art continues to be rooted in these values and his extraordinary life journey.
