Leticia Bajuyo creates, lives, and teaches in southern Indiana where she is an Associate Professor of Art at Hanover College. After earning a BFA in 1998 from the University of Notre Dame and an MFA in 2001 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she moved to Hanover College to join the Art and Art History Department.
Growing up and living in the Midwest, specifically in areas that often feel in-between places of interest, Bajuyo’s aesthetic was influenced by the landscape and the pace of rural communities. Additionally, growing up in a biracial, bicultural, and bilingual household helped generate her interest in blending dissimilar materials. Furthermore, Bajuyo thrives on learning or inventing new ways to make. Her approach to technique has a do-it-yourself, problem-solving attitude that is guided by concept and yields combinations such as 8,000 donated CD’s and Theremins or player piano rolls and typewriters.
Recent solo exhibitions include Event Horizon at the Women and Their Work Gallery in Austin, Texas, pre-fab(ulous) environments at Washington & Jefferson College in Pennsylvania, and divertissement at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington. Recent two and three-person exhibitions include Wow and Flutter at Vox Populi in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Values at The Cressman Center in Louisville, Kentucky, and 3x3 at Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, Indiana.
