Ezequiel Jimenez is a New York based visual artist, born in DR. Currently lives in New York City. He holds an MFA in Fine Art, a BA in Art and Political Science both from The City University of New York at Lehman College, and an AAS in Digital Arts & Graphic Design from Bronx Community College.

His work consists of large-scale paintings and works on paper. Integral to the imagery is a dialog about curved lines, organic forms and mechanical imagery often resolving in monochromatic explosions of conflict. Space and balance dictate the framework. Compositions are completed on canvas, eucaboard, hard plywood, paper or other media. The use of paint, pencil, ink, gesso or varnish enable a broad mark making vocabulary and allow for a range of unexpected outcomes. 

Before receiving his MFA in 2015 from The City University of New York at Lehman College, his works has been presented in over 25 exhibitions, both nationally and internationally including The City University of New York at Lehman College Art Gallery and Hall of Fame Art Gallery at Bronx Community College, Alexey von Schlepped Gallery of Art at University of Connecticut, Attleboro Arts Museum in Massachusetts, Warwick Museum and Tse Tse Gallery In Rhode Island, Clemente Soto Velez Cultural & Educational Center, and Rio II Gallery in New York City; Rutgers University at Center for Latino Arts and Culture, The Paterson Museum and Perth Amboy Gallery Center for the Arts in New Jersey; Galería Universal in Santiago de Cuba, Centro de Convenciones in Cancun, México, and Centro de la Cultura de Santiago in Dominican Republic, and others.

He have been a visiting artist-talk as well as motivator in academic institutions including the Instituto Tecnológico Mexico (La Reforma) in Santiago, DR; Ken University in Union, New Jersey; The City University of New York at Bronx Community College in Bronx, New York City; Adelphi University in Long Island, New York and others.

Jiménez is the recipient of several honors as well as awards including a Proclamation by the New York State Senate (2010); Lehman College Graduate Scholarship (2013); proclaimed as Distinguished Son of Santiago in DR (2013); Proclaimed Orgullo Nuestro (Our Pride), Instituto Tecnológico Mexico (La Reforma), Santiago, DR (2013); City Council Citation, New York City (2012); Plaque of Recognition, Quisqueya In Action, Inc., and City of Providence Citation in Rhode Island ( 2009); Proclamation by the New York State Assembly of New York and Town of West New York in New Jersey (2007), Certificate of Recognition, Association of Progressive Dominicans (ACDP) 2005, in New York City, and others.
