Jasmin Cañas is a self taught visual artist from San Francisco, California. Working with a spectrum of acrylic paints and digital palettes, she captures images, inspired by motherhood, family dynamics, and the psychology of trauma. Inspired by the surrealist style of painting, she ties together imagery collected from thoughts and dreams in order to tell a story. 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 in the AT&T ball park, in San Francisco’s Union Square. In 2016, she exhibited her collection “Matanzas”, inspired by her trip 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 Senator Scott Wiener. In 2018, She presented her collection of Mission District inspired paintings at Action Latina for the “Ode to our Barrio” exhibition. Jasmin continues to reside in San Francisco, and is passionate about exploring new creative outlets and forms of expression.
