Erica Enriquez is a multidisciplinary artist and musician based in New York City.
Primarily situated in the realm of sculpture, her work spans across various media, including but not limited to drawing, painting, video, photography, sound installation and performance. Themes of this work involve the productive confusion of her identity as a mixed race femme body, and the humor and empowerment that comes with this betweenness. The expression of these ideas often yield participatory experiences for her audiences, which is rooted in her dedication to community activism, and interest in challenging traditional art spaces.
Erica received her BFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2019 and is currently an MFA student at Columbia University School of the Arts with a concentration in Sculpture: Expanded Practice.
Erica has shown and sold work in numerous galleries and alternative art spaces across New York and New England. In addition Erica is currently working to finish her first permanent public installation in her home town of Newburgh NY.
Erica’s work is deeply imbedded in the sonic arts as well, as a guitar player, vocalist, sound designer and producer. Her main project is CHOO CHOO, an experimental indie rock band that recently released their sophomore EP called Overeat, which is available to listen to on all major streaming platforms.
