Daniel Arzola is a visual artist, human rights, and lecturer, who gained international recognition by creating the campaign “No Soy Tu Chiste" (I'm not a Joke), a series of posters that challenge transphobia and homophobia. The viral campaign was translated into twenty languages and gained support on social media from the American singer Madonna. As the creator of “No Soy tu Chiste" Arzola popularized the term Artivism, which describes his artistic philosophy, using art as a communication tool that promotes his advocacy and assists in the construction of identity.

Arzola has worked internationally with numerous museums, NGOs and cultural institutions. His work has been exhibited in numerous countries in North America, Latin America and Europe. He was recognized for his contributions to the LGBTQ+ community with the Trailblazer Honor Award by Logo TV.
