ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jasmine Zelaya is a multi- disciplinary first generation Honduran- American artist. The daughter of parents who immigrated to the US in the early 1970’s, much of her work references the aesthetics of that period. Zelaya’s work explores themes of identity, assimilation and the brown body through a familial narrative rich with symbology. Zelaya received her BFA in Painting in 2006 from the Kansas City Art Institute. Based in Houston, her work has been featured on television media and in numerous publications, including as a cover artist for New American Paintings. Recent installations speak to the injustices faced by migrants, BIPOC and the systems that continuously fail them. Zelaya’s work is included in the 2021 Texas Biennial: A New Landscape, A Possible Horizon.
