 Jazmine Hayes is a Brooklyn based mixed-media artist, born and raised in East New York Brooklyn. She uses her artwork to explore social and personal topics of family ancestry, woman of color, and identity. Although Hayes is predominately a painter, she is very intrigued with installations, using whatever materials she believes the work needs in order to connect with the viewer. She holds a BFA in painting from CUNY Queens College where she studied closely under Glenn Goldberg and Debra Priestly. She has worked with community-based organizations across New York City as a muralist and teaching artist. Hayes states, “My history, my testimonies, and life's experiences substantiate my identity and inspire my work”.
