Art is a love and liberation practice

Yasmin Hernandez Art is a shop I created to engage more directly with people who share my passions. I am a Brooklyn born and raised artist whose parents are from Ponce, Puerto Rico. As a kid, I went through a profound process of questioning, rejecting, uncovering, revealing, honoring and celebrating my identity. Art has been my visual journal chronicling my observations and growth from my birthplace of Park Slope Brooklyn, to East New York Brooklyn where I was raised; from LaGuardia High School of the Arts in NYC to art school at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York; from my work as Youth Artist Program director at Taller Puertorriqueño, in Philadelphia to my work as an artist educator at El Museo del Barrio and the Studio Museum in Harlem in East and West Harlem; from the two home births of my sons in my Queens apartment, to my rematriation/ reverse migration/ journey back to my ancestral home in Boriken.

The human quest is about liberation in all forms. Struggles for political liberation are microcosms, stages upon which we carry out profound battles for collective, personal, and spiritual liberation. One cannot exist without the other. One cannot free themselves while oppressing another or being oppressed in the home. One cannot claim to heal another while being sick in the soul. We realize this and passionately pursue our holistic liberation. We resist all that holds us back and in the process are called rebels, outcasts, trouble makers. These are the people I paint: those working to free themselves and/ or those who can teach us something about how to get there.

I immerse myself in reading, researching, learning and understanding my subject and their story. I channel the spiritual pulse of their experience to capture a piece of it in an artwork. Working with paints mostly, I build a visual story through layers of images, collaged photos, documents and text. Since my introduction to art came from my graffiti writer brother and an after-school calligraphy class, incorporating lettering and text is how I stay connected to my roots.

I am an artist at the service of the island of Borikén, her sister islands and the special spirits who have graced her lands, waters and beyond. From Borikén, to the moon and beyond, this shop is a little part of my work in this life. Thank you for stopping by. For more info: https://www.yasminhernandezart.com.
