Benjamin Muñoz is an award winning printmaker and painter living in Dallas Texas. His work is often reflective of his heritage, upbringing, and current surroundings. Telling stories through his work, Munoz seeks to provide a narrative for his family and ancestors using imagery and composition to convey the physical and emotional journeys of his family and people. Muñoz often stacks the imagery in his work to symbolize how everything in life is dependent on what came before it, the idea that each generation supports the next. Benjamin attended Del Mar College where he studied studio art. Craving a more personal dynamic he began engaging in apprenticeships and one-on-one critiques with art professors such as Jerry Corbaruvius and Joe Peña. Muñoz has had articles about his work published and discussed in several arts and culture publications, blogs, podcasts and portfolios. Benjamin has also had several solo exhibitions throughout the nation and regularly gives artist talks at studios, galleries, and universities.
The “Endless Endeavor” series took him more than a year to complete. Each panel represents a different chapter in the evolution of Muñoz’s family, from the emigration of his paternal grandfather, Alberto, to the birth of his daughters, Jane and Florence.
