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.

BFAW Reading. 2017. Performance.

In the Spring of 2017, SAIC's Writing Program thesis class had worked endlessly writing, critiquing, and revising each other's creative work. Weeks after weeks, my peers and I pushed our work to the best of our abilities. At the very end, we each had a moment on stage to read our some of our hard work amongst friends, family, and colleagues.

The reading took place on May 13th, 2017. For this performance, I read my "Husk" essay.
