Cruz is a Costa Rican/ Spanish artist graduated in 2019 with a degree in contemporary visual arts from Det Fynske Kunstakademi in Denmark.

"In his practice Allan A. Cruz examinates narratives of ‘in-betweenness’ by drawing on ideas of cultural criticism such as post-colonialism, gender identity and social-constructivism and anchoring them in lived experiences. Cruz works with a broad range of media and methods, from installation to 3D animation, text, performance and sculpture using video as a central part of his projects." - Karen V. Andersen, curator.
