Regin Igloria

Visual Artist (US)

Regin Igloria is a multidisciplinary artist based in Chicago, Illinois, USA, who also works as an educator and arts administrator.

In 2010, he founded North Branch Projects, a community bookbinding project based in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood, which allows him to combine various aspects of his work as an educator and artist. His work has been exhibited and collected internationally, including the ANTI Contemporary Art Festival in Finland, Out of Site Performance Festival Chicago, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, The Franklin, Zg Gallery, and The Center for Book Arts NYC. He is a recipient of a 3Arts Teaching Artist Award, Propeller Grant, and an Americans for the Arts Fellowship.
