Eric Tenorio


My name is Eric Tenorio currently living in Southern California but lived in New York City for a couple of years. I have been living with HIV now for over five years. I use my status and my experience with HIV as a way to drive me to create work that I really care about and issues I want to discuss.


There are many ways to describe art, many definitions to what art is. To me art is not simply a reproduction of reality, but a creative interpretation of reality that communicates beliefs and emotion, and provokes questions and further discussion. Art makes the viewer confront things they wouldn't normally confront, especially within themselves. I use photography to create my own version of reality.
