Josemar Gonzalez Lizarraga is an artist and community organizer with extensive experience in both the Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California transborder communities. He currently works with various independent artistic organizations on both sides of the border to help educate and enrich using the arts as a means of communication. The majority of his work deals with documentation, storytelling, and deconstruction of human experiences. Trained in the media arts, he uses them as tools to engage audiences and help bring experiences and stories to a wider audience.

He is a member of COYOTE, an artist collaborative in Tijuana, and collaborator of the TJinCHINA project. In 2014, he founded a bi-national music and arts festival in Tijuana “Rumble Fest” that brings together artist communities from both sides of the Mexico-US border, working as Director of PASE music. He is currently the in-house Media Artist with The AjA Project and has shown work in Mexico, the United States, Japan, and Germany.

His most recent public art projects are flight+Paths, a large-scale mural and installation unveiled in 2015 in the San Diego International Airport, using portraits and personal objects to elevate immigrant voices of the City Heights community around themes of identity and crossing of boundaries, both physical and cultural. He is currently designing a mural project raising awareness around homelessness in Hillcrest San Diego, California going up April 2017, and directing workshops with Transborder communities to create a digital living archive of Transborder lifestyles funded by the California Arts Council under the Artist Activating Communities Grant.
