ABOUT

 

Jasmine Holmes (1994, Phoenix, Arizona ) is an artist who creates drawings through a

variety of media. She received her BFA from the University of West Florida, and her

MFA from Colorado State University. 

 

Her works are meant to offer discourse on

consumerist society and its appetite for devouring Black culture. She uses depictions of

staple foods from her Creole upbringing, hair culture, music and textiles to showcase

the eternal connections she keeps to her ancestral home. Her work celebrates the many

colorful aspects of Black American culture while creating conservation on the

multifaceted way it's consumed and regurgitated amongst the populace.
