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.

When Hadley Banozac was asked to describe Carlos, they swiftly said, "Fuck you, I'm Carlos now."

Get to Know the Artist

When asked to describe their friend Carlos, everyone had something different to say. Find out below which friends will be receiving a brick through their window.

Goldie Murray: Hi, I'm Carlos Piñón. I have a very specific style which includes black, stripes, and a light windbreaker-material full length coat that's never warm enough for the winter chill. I speak in a soft, quiet tone, and am very rationally-minded. Advice, suggestions, truth and opinions are all things I am never afraid to share. I do not possess the ability to be heartless or cruel. I write my heart and soul out in countless poems, and tell others I'm not that special and procrastinate, when I really am one of a kind and get things done when I put my mind to it. I am the perfect shoulder to cry on and lend my ears to those who need them without hesitation. I do not see that I'm one of a kind, because so often it is those that are the most humble that are the most unique.

Juan Mora: Carlos Pinion is an artistic, funny, friendly guy. He has an unhealthy obsession of using Tumblr, watching Doctor Who, and wearing striped shirts. No amount of Billie Joe can keep this guy from having Green Day as one of his favorite bands. Not to mention his other favorite band Streetlight Manifesto. When Carlos is not busy saving the world, he maintains a website (insert website here). Carlos was awarded the (insert scholarship name here) where he is currently attending the School Art's Institute of Chicago (is that right?).

Adrian Chavez: What is a Carlos? A Carlos is a rare breed of hair flop who build 2D voxel houses for… 574 hours?!?!? Musical preference for Carlos' are usually Reel Big Fish and Babymetal. Buy a Carlos of your own at your local Walmart or maybe Juan's house. Pinons are manufactured using a cold steel press with aluminum blasting to create its unique finish.

Luis Mejico: A celebrated novelist, poet, and ecologist, Carlos Pinon has recently been named one of SURF(ACE) MAGAZINE's "Best Young Writers With an Interest in Dirt" and has been lauded by Die Täglich Taucher Quarterly as "The greatest non-German deep sea diver this side of the Zwickauer Mulde." When not exploring the vastness of the ocean floor, or inspecting the peculiar stain on his favorite tie (maybe tartar sauce? Regolith?), Carlos spends his time writing poetry, prose, and everything in between. He lives in rural Ohio.

Ariel Carter: Corlos O'Piñon (Swarlos) has taken the writing world by storm over the past arbitrarily significant amount of time. His dissolution of the sentence, many collections of essays of motive (the strongest of course being the "Why I Write" series), angry eyebrows, and, of course, penchant for striped shirts has him placed firmly wading in the kiddie pool directly next to the pool of the conversation of who will win this year's Nobel. What Corlos started with sentence he is finishing with the word, communicating solely through unpronounceable groupings of 3 letters (mostly consonants), untranscribable sounds, and excessive punctuation. When asked about his feelings on the literary award circuit, and his potential next move, he had only to say "ghy jrf drg hlk sps jki tdq pjk lka!!!" Or for those of us who aren't O'Piñon scholars, (of course lacking the poetics of the original form) "I am just glad to have been able to wear my swim suit. (I am bisexual.)"

Madisson Dashiell: I'm Carlos. I love vines of funny dogs, Streetlight Manifesto, and Kurt Vonnegut. I live in Chicago and I make cool art. I'm kind, considerate, and have an awesome sense of humor. Vote 4 me in 2k16 as newly elected Supreme Overlord and Dictator.

Skylar Furtado: Carlos Piñon is a man of many talents, including: cooking eggs, making puns, and writing.
