Jazmin Velasco

Jazmin was born in 1971 in Guadalajara, Mexico where she studied graphic design and illustration. Years later she moved to Mexico City to study oil painting and printmaking. And years later she moved to London where she continues to illustrate books for publishers in Mexico, USA and UK.


In Autumn 2005 she joined Greenwich Printmakers Association and in February 2006 one of her works was selected for the National Print Exhibition in the Mall Galleries, London. Her prints are exhibited in galleries throughout the UK.


She is inspired by the work of Jose Guadaupe 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. Her real love is and always will be the work of Saul Steinberg.
