A native of Monterrey, México (b. 1981), Adrian Aguilera currently lives and works in Austin, Texas. Working with a variety of mediums that include sculpture, text-based work, print media, video, and installations, Aguilera researches the intrinsic essence that resides in objects.

He holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (2004) from Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, México. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Fusebox Festival, Blanton Museum of Art, and George Washington Carver Museum in Austin; as well as the Instituto Cultural de México in Paris, France.
