Francisco Masó (b. Havana, 1988) is an AfroLatinx visual artist living and working in Miami. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Stage Design from the Instituto Superior de Arte (2014) and is a graduate of both the Behavior Art School (2009) and the San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts (2007). Maso’s artwork delves into the contemporary understanding of socially shaped “unconscious behaviors” and challenges what is accepted by society as natural, necessary, and normal. He examines the concept of power and the relationships between blackness, civil rights, and the police system through the lens of his personal experiences in Cuba and the United States.
Masó recently presented Who Kills Ai Weiwei at Dimensions Variable (DV) and solo project and winner of the DV—AIRIE Award.
