Caleb Colon
Artist Bio:
Please visit to view my works in progress!

I was born in Maricao, Puerto Rico in 1981. My family left the island for Springfield, Mass in 1984 because of the increasing corruption in Puerto Rico. In Springfield I witnessed my family move from a low-income, predominately Hispanic area into a middle-class, predominately White area.
Due to my rapidly adoptive approach to the environment, I was constantly struggling with my identity. I couldn’t speak fluent spanish but I could understand it. I could curve my speech to street slang and back to standard english. I would contently listen to Buena Vista Social Club but could not dance mambo to save my life.
As oppositional human behavior would have it, neither White or Hispanic groups, outside of family, would accept me as part of their culture. I’d sometimes get called “gringo” by Hispanics and “spic” by Whites. Confused about culture, I had to find an independent view of myself where I felt valuable and accepted. The arts provided me with all I needed to experience that in my search.
Developing my talents further, I valued the function of art not as a platform to locate and assume answers but more as the fuel to continue asking the questions.
