Changarrito Residency: Juan Zavala Castro

About the Artist

Juan Zavala Castro is a multidisciplinary artist working in San Antonio, Texas. Being born and raised in Coahuila, Mexico until the age of 12, much of his work reflects his past and observes a now distant cultural connection. Juan is an Educator at the McNay Art Museum and has worked in Arts Education for the past 9 years.

Artist Statement

“My work is a self-reflection of culture, doubt and instinct. I make work intuitively, with out knowing the end result. As the work develops, I create a narrative through symbolism referencing masterworks, past experiences, and my own identity.”


Artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.

Juan Zavala Castro will be at the Mexic-Arte Museum featuring his artwork on the Changarrito cart right outside the Museum’s entrance on TBD dates
