KARL OROZCO is an artist and educator based in Queens, NY. He is interested in gaming as a multidisciplinary art form for community building and non-linear storytelling. He believes good art is playful. Orozco's artistic practice centers around the games we play and the ones we inherit - digital, analog, and psychological.

Orozco was the 2018 National Artist-in-Residence at the Neon Museum of Las Vegas, NV, where he transformed their project space into a public, intergenerational mahjong parlor based on his grandmother’s underground Manila gambling den. He is currently de- and re-constructing the backstories of “ethnic” fighting game characters to be more congruent with the historical traumas and spiritual practices their creators mine.
