Yen Ospina is a 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, furniture, and literature. She is currently trying to find her inspirations thru different styles of mediums. In addition to creating gallery pieces, Yen is a local muralist and has done live art painting with musicians such as Mosaic Foundation and Big Mean Sound Machine.
