Jasmin Cañas is a self-taught visual artist from the Mission District, in San Francisco. Working with a full spectrum of color and iridescent acrylic paints, she depicts images, inspired by her vibrant neighborhood, colorful family and inspirational travels. In 2014, Jasmin was commissioned to paint a large heart sculpture for the San Francisco General Hospital’s “Heroes and Hearts” foundation. This sculpture was later displayed at the AT&T Ballpark, at San Francisco’s Union Square, and the image was printed on limited edition Ghirardelli chocolate boxes. In 2016, she exhibited her collection “Matanzas,” which inspired by her travels to Cuba, in a privately owned gallery in San Francisco. In late 2017, Jasmin displayed her work in the group exhibition, “Housing,” which was held at the offices of CA Senator Scott Wiener. In 2018, she exhibited her work at the “Ode to our Barrio” showcase, at Accion Latina Gallery in the Mission District. Jasmin continues to reside in San Francisco, and is passionate about furthering her education and artistic career.
