josemar Gonzalez Lizarraga  ARtist,  DESIGNER, DIRECTOR, COMPOSER
I am a Multi-Disciplinary Artist & Community Organizer with extensive experience in both the Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego, California regions. I currently work with various independent artistic organizations on both sides of the border to help educate and enrich using the arts as a means of communication. The majority of my work deals with documentation, storytelling, and deconstruction of human experiences through the use of video, photography, installation, audio, technology, and various creative mediums.

I began working with non-profit organizations in 2010. In 2011 I joined The AjA Project, a City-Heights based non-profit that works with diverse communities of San Diego. There I worked as a Media Artist and later became Creative Director, where I supported in the development of innovative and creative projects including the California Arts Council Innovations and Intersections Grant to further the organizations mission and growth, until Fall of 2020. 
In 2014, I founded PASE Music, a concert production company focused on creating the best experiences for music lovers in the city. With it I created a bi-national music and arts festival in Tijuana, Mexico that brings together artist communities from both sides of the Mexico-US border.
I am co-founder and current director of Borderclick, a digital living archive founded in 2016 focused on creating work that speaks of Transborder experiences through the use of media arts, technology, and education. I was awarded recognition by the California Assembly and California Humanities for that work in 2018.
I was awarded an established artist fellowship by the California Arts Council in 2021 - 2022. My latest installation is titled, 'Transcending Perception', and it is currently up for view at San Diego's Liberty Station in California. My Latest films are, "Apocatastasis", directed and produced by Shinpei Takeda, premiered in 2022 and, “Like Honey’, by Nicole Valencia premiered in 2023 and are currently touring. I have shown work in Mexico, the United States, Japan, and Germany.
