LA FRONTERA: Artists along the US Mexican Border

Artist and border activist Scott Nicol lives and works in McAllen, Texas, where he teaches art at South Texas College. He also co-chairs the Sierra Club’s Borderlands Team. Nicol often uses beeswax for his art work which he mixes with pigments and uses it as paint.

“What is the essence of your life as a border artist?”

“The border is a fiction; the river is real. The Rio Grande nourishes the landscape and the people who live along its banks, and it gives rise to my art.”
