Vincent P. Rascon

One of the most noted Mexican American artists of the last 30 years, Vincent Rascon was raised and attended college in El Paso, Texas. He completed post graduate studies in drawing and sculpture at the University of Southern California. Focusing on printmaking, he earned his MFA from Otis Art Institute and continued advanced studies in printmaking at the University of Madrid at Atelier 17 Paris.

He has permanent collections in Mexico, at the Office of the Governor of Oaxaca, Merida City Museum (Yucatan), Regional Museum of Oaxaca; in Spain his work is at the Sala Provincia de Leon and the National Library of Spain (Madrid); and in the U.S. at Mills College in Oakland.

Vincent taught etching, ceramics and glass blowing to students of the Bay Area (northern California) for 25 years at the College of San Mateo. Today, he enjoys his retirement in the Bay Area as well as in Atzompa, Oaxaca, Mexico, a town known for its green glazed pottery. Many call him "Maestro" (the teacher). He continues doing what he loves most: etching, and most recently, painting.
