I am...
A self thought musician, self thought graphic artist at my core, with some formal education. I can work on any medium anywhere towards a desired/or undesired (if that is the purpose) professional finished product. Give me a mission and I will excel on it. Dare me and you will have a memorable unique artwork.

Francisco was born in Rio Piedras- San Juan ,Puerto Rico , and raised in Saint Just, Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico. Coming from a working class family he was never into any art growing up. In 1986 he discovered the punk scene. Took some choir and music reading at school of LIBRE DE MUSICA de Carolina hoping to also learn guitar but he never applied himself due to his desire to express himself in a band.Throughout the early 1990's he played guitar and co-conceptualized the local pioneer punk in Spanish bands,RECHAZO SOCIAL and LOPODRIDO(1990-1997). He had his first experience with visual arts in 1987 admiring the guerrilla artwork featured in N.Y .Bad Newz zine, which inspired him to do the band's collage posters; later distributing them all over the metropolitan area and using them as writing paper for international letters. His friend Rebeca Nogales introduced him to drawing and contemporary art exhibitions. Inspired by the EAP(School of plastic arts PR) and Rebeca, he has continued to visit exhibits for the past 18 years. In the mid 90's he lived for extended periods in NYC(where he first exhibited his collages(ABCNORIO-curated by Christine Boards)and Toronto. It was in Toronto where he started making collage paintings and actually was given the opportunity to exhibit them along homeless youth on a SKETCH organization exhibit. This organization afterwards bought his first custom painting; which became part of their permanent collection . /Back in early 1999 in Puerto Rico he focused on putting together a body of work--which he did and used to enter full time to Escuela de Artes PlÃsticas de Puerto Rico(the equivalent in quality of work-not in attendance price to the Art institute of Chicago).He became an honor student, won a trip to visit all the best Museums in Spain and received a scholarship in 2002.That same year he was accepted to the Art Institute of Chicago--which he declined to attend because of its extraordinary educational prices. In 2004 he entered North Eastern Illinois University where he continued his BA in Art Education classes and where he was also in the Deans list(honor list) until 2007. Francisco is a self educator and he continually works on various media, exploring the world and the trip of being alive.
About my artwork
I strongly believe in the transformational power of Art and it's million of positive possibilities. I have used Digital media, Installation, Painting, Performance, Photography, Sculpture, and Music as media to do my work. I can also produce digital art, graphic art, murals, interventions, and any other sacred cow of contemporary art. My visual/sonic/conceptual background has educated me in multi dimentional aesthetics. I also love to do site expecific work. The conceptual background , all of my old, sketche/ideas and current work are missing from online for obvious reasons. If you are serious about your enquiry contact me: conejoblanco72 at
Artists I like
Bob Z, Rebeca Nogales Molinari,Andy Wharhol,Gee Vaucher(CRASS),Winston Smith(DK), Reymond Pettibon(Black FLAG), Daisy Mora de Leon, Morgan Isaac Lopez,Jola S., Roberto Parrilla, Elizam Escobar,Mari Mater O’Neil, Jorge Felix, Edra Soto, Pistoleto, etc.

What exhibitions are good at the moment?
Whatever they show at Chicago Cultural Center is excellent,
it beats all the paying museums for quality of work and it's free.
The street, Hyde Park Art Center.
Centre of the artworld:
New York, London, LA, Berlin, Beijing, my studio, online, nowhere and everywhere, another city

rom AlterNet: By Alexis Baden-Mayer and Ronnie Cummins
Here's a partial lineup of hired guns and organizations behind the anti-labeling advertising blitz soon to hit the California airwaves.

What do a former mouthpiece for tobacco and big oil, a corporate-interest PR flack, and the regional director of a Monsanto-funded tort reform group have in common?

They’re all part of the anti-labeling PR team that will soon unleash a massive advertising and PR campaign in California, designed to scare voters into rejecting the California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act.

In November, California voters will vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on a law to require mandatory labeling of all GMO ingredients in processed foods, and ban the routine industry practice of mislabeling foods containing GMO ingredients as ‘natural.’

I was just listening to Sade when I remembered seeing once this video-This video features one of my collages-street art that I posted in 2000-2001 on calle Sol-old san juan PR-- when I lived in San Justo street(where Sade's apartment is on the video). On my works Images you can see the poster pasted in the delapitaded building she walks in front of with her kids. Enjoy!

Hi Francisco,
Thank you for the invitation. I was interested to see your article on GMO stuff. The other aspect of this practice is the evolutionary effects on birds and other animal species. The increased presence of pesticides, through either increased mortality or decreased fecundity in the species, can affect the evolutionay future of the species either through adaptation or extinction. Migratory songbirds in particular have been especially decimated recently with some species diminishing in numbers by over 80% in the last 20 years.
