Eduardo Pineda


Eduardo Pineda (born 1956) is a Peruvian American muralist, visual artist, curator, and educator. He moved with his family from Lima to Chicago when he was an infant. He went to Peru in 1972 as a teenager and reconnected with his heritage in Lima. Pineda settled in the Bay Area in 1976 and earned his bachelor’s of fine arts in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1983. Since 1978 he has painted more than fifty murals, including New Visions by Disabled Artists in San Francisco’s Mission District. He went on to earn a master’s in interdisciplinary arts from San Francisco State University in 1988. His role in preserving and amplifying Latinx heritage in the Mission District led to a close, collaborative friendship with muralist Raymond “Ray” Patlán. Over the years they have collaborated in murals like Berkeley Reads, Raizes (roots), and their Fresco partnership between 1990 and 1998. A community artist, he has also created work to support the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 1245 and Edwin Lindo’s campaign. Pineda has worked in the Education Department at SFMOMA, as the Director of Education at the Museum of the African Diaspora, and as an independent curator and artist at the Richmond Art Center and the Oakland Museum of California, among others. He was a teaching artist for the VALUES Project from 2003 to 2006 and taught at the California College of the Arts before he retired. His artworks are in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts and the San Francisco Arts Commission public art collection.
