Yen Ospina is a local Ithaca Queer Colombian-American self-taught artist and illustrator depicting her own interpretation of folk and art nouveau. Through earth tone colors, ornamental layouts, and meticulous detail, the work challenges viewers to delve beyond aesthetic allure and allow mysticism to guide their interpretation. Yen Ospina’s work is influenced by years of exposing herself to antique art (such as Gustav Klimt & Alphonse Mucha), furniture, and literature. In addition to creating gallery pieces, Yen is an amazing local muralist - as you can see below!
