    About: Points is a unique artist's chess set. I was interested in creating a set in which the symbolic significance of each piece was replaced with a visual points system.

    Francisco Moreno was born in Mexico City in 1986, ultimately moving to Arlington, Texas in 1992. In 2006, he attended the Conceptual Design Summer Program at the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Querétaro Campus in Mexico. Moreno returned to Arlington to complete his Bachelors in Fine Art at the University of Texas at Arlington in 2010 where he received the James S. Barnett Jr. Ideas in Art Charitable Foundation Scholarship. In 2012 he graduated with a Masters in Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design with the prestigious Presidential Scholar Tuition award. Moreno's work has been exhibited in New York City, New York; Providence, Rhode Island; Stowe, Vermont; Concord, Massachusetts; Dallas, Texas; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. His WCD Project, a major painting and car performance installation, was debuted in May 2015 at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's first annual Soluna Festival where Moreno was in the company of internationally known artists including Pipilotti Riist and Alex Prager. In April 2018, Moreno exhibited Chapel, his largest painting project to date, at Erin Cluley Gallery. Chapel was acquired by the Dallas Museum of Art in July 2019.
