Hey, how’s it going? My name is Erick Mendoza-Ojeda. Growing up in the South Bay, competitive athletics were a part of my identity. I was interested in the science of sport, athletes in motion and saw a future in kinesiology and through those previous avenues and my need to express myself, I found photography.
Through my work, I explore layers that express individuality, identity and different perspectives. I take a different approach to art, exploring deeper meaning through print manipulation, words, colors, textures and juxtapositions. Blending music, streetwear, and portraiture, I want to prove that not everything is as it seems. I embrace differences and celebrate individuality.
