César Miguel Vega-Magallón was born in Huentitán, a small town on the periphery of Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. He crossed into the United States at the age of four and has lived in Southern California with his family ever since. In 2010 he received an associate degree from Antelope Valley College and he has been accepted to both UCLA and USC to study art history. César Miguel is currently not pursuing an education due to financial issues brought about by his immigration status. His goal is to finish his undergraduate studies and start the long path towards a doctorate degree. He hopes an advanced education will give him the tools with which to faithfully document the art of other marginalized peoples.
