Carlos Antonio Piñón

Carlos Antonio Piñón is a Chicago-born artist and writer seeking to destroy the sentence. His work has been featured in several recycle bins throughout the city, most often with a better draft already in progress.

Carlos's biggest secret is that he has no idea how to write. Like no idea. He just kind of smashes the keys on his laptop hoping they form complete sentences. He wrote his last essay by throwing darts at a dictionary.



Carlos Antonio Piñón is an artist and writer examining how people interact with words and language.

He holds a Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has shown work at the Siragusa Gallery, the LeRoy Neiman Center, the Gene Siskel Film Center, the MacLean Center, the Page Gallery, the Ryerson & Burnham Libraries, Sullivan Galleries, the Zhou B Art Center, and Gallery 2501.

Carlos has also performed at the Rudy Lozano, Albany Park, and Back of the Yards Chicago Public Libraries, as well as the Jackson Junge Gallery and the Steppenwolf Theatre.
