Scott Méxcal he/him was born amidst the nopal and yucca on the bank of the Rio Grande river in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Scott's ancestors have lived along the river on both sides of what is today the Mexican/U.S border for countless generations. Scott is Chicano, descended from indigenous people and Spanish/European colonizers.  Scott spent his young life in the family garage building lowrider-bikes and cars, in the barrio creating street art, and in the Catholic church where the lines between spirituality, healing, and art blurred together in his mind.  In 2000 Scott moved to Seattle due to his lifelong passion for grunge music. Since then he has contributed to the creative fabric of the city as a graphic designer, a public artist, a youth art mentor, and art activist. His work has hung in numerous exhibitions throughout the city and surrounding area.
