Andres Serrano is an American artist of Honduran and Afro-Cuban heritage who is best-known for his large-scale Cibachrome prints which employ religious symbolism. Widely maligned during the Culture Wars in the late-1980s for his artwork “Piss Christ,” the artist (who was raised by a devoutly Catholic family) asserts the photograph was never meant to shock or be blasphemous or offensive.

Serrano’s works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Malmö Konsthall in Sweden, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., among others.
