Jazmin Velasco

Jazmin Velasco was born in 1971 in Guadalajara, Mexico where she studied graphic design and illustration. Years later she moved to Mexico City to study oil painting and printmaking followed by a subsequent move to London where she continues to illustrate books for publishers in Mexico, USA and U.K.


She is inspired by the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada, the father of Mexican printmaking, and by Leopoldo Mendez who founded the Taller de la Grafica Popular, the celebrated organization which produced the posters and pamphlets that brought the Mexican Revolution to its illiterate masses, and created some of the finest graphic art of the 20 th century. But her real love is and always will be Saul Steinberg.


Jazmin is a member of Southbank and London Printmakers Association. Her prints have been selected twice for the National Print Exhibition (Originals) and also twice for the Summer Exhibition in the Royal Academy of Arts in 2008 and 2009. Her prints are in galleries around the UK.
