About

Bio

Based in Providence, Rhode Island, Sierra Sanchez (they/them/theirs) is a multidisciplinary artist who creates surreal, large-scale oil paintings, experimental films and electronic music inspired by stories from their life and Filipino/Japanese family heritage. Their work focuses specifically on the Hapa (mixed-race) experience, intergenerational trauma and lost histories from a queer perspective. 

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, and Dallas, Texas, Sanchez moved to Providence in 2016 to pursue a BFA with a focus in painting at Rhode Island School of Design. Now a recent graduate, Sierra works on their visual arts practice (@sierrasanchezart) at their studio in Pawtucket, produces electropop music as a solo act called Ox. Sanchez (@ox.sanchez.music), and otherwise works as a freelance cinematographer and web designer. Sanchez has exhibited their paintings with Skye Gallery, Public Gallery, Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, and Coastal Contemporary in Newport, RI.
