Houston-based ceramic artist and muralist Jesse Sifuentes was born in Kingsville, Texas and grew up in Galveston, Texas, where he attended Ball High School.

 

His art teacher, recognizing his exceptional talent as an artist, strongly encouraged him to pursue art beyond high school.

 

With the support of a Moody Scholarship, Sifuentes enrolled in the prestigious art program at Texas Southern University founded by nationally renowned artist and muralist Dr. John Biggers and sculptor Carroll Simms. He has exhibited his ceramics in numerous exhibitions, assisted with many public art projects, and has created multiple murals in the East End. He retired from the Houston Independent School District after 27 years of service as an art teacher and taught for 15 years in Texas Southern University’s Art Department. Jesse Sifuentes: Narratives is the artist’s first solo exhibition.
