Yen Ospina


Self Taught Artist

Queer | Latinx

Furniture Enthusiast


Yen Ospina’s graphic imagery is full of texture and bold colors. Reminiscent of the deco era with a reinterpreted energy this self-taught artist and illustrator showcases her talent, our current culture, the female body, and dreamscapes in fun and inviting presentations. Through earth tone colors, ornamental layouts, and meticulous detail, the work challenges viewers to delve beyond aesthetic allure and allow mysticism to guide their understanding. Yen’s work is steeped in her personal experience as a Queer Colombian-American young woman birthing art right here in the Finger Lakes.
