Jazmin Velasco (born 1971)

Jazmin was born in 1971 in Guadalajara, Mexico where she studied graphic design and illustration. She then moved to Mexico City to study oil painting and printmaking, whilst working as a cartoonist for a national newspaper.  A year later, Jazmin moved to London where she continues to illustrate books for publishers in Mexico, USA and U.K.

In 2005 Velasco joined Greenwich Printmakers Association and later became member of Southbank Printmakers too. Her prints have been selected twice for the National Print Exhibition (Originals) and also twice for the Summer Exhibition in the Royal Academy of Arts (2008 - 2009).

She is inspired by the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, the father of Mexican printmaking, and by Leopoldo Mendez who founded the Taller de la Grafica Popular, the celebrated organization which produced the posters and pamphlets that brought the Mexican Revolution to its illiterate masses, and created some of the finest graphic art of the 20th century. But her real love and inspiration is and always will be Saul Steinberg.

Jazmin is also a practitioner and teacher of Taoist martial arts. In China, the arts and martial prowess have been linked since ancient times. The martial arts themselves are a kind of fine art for those who understand them.
