Jatziri Barron is a Mexican visual artist and muralist living and working in Houston since 2013, dedicated full-time to her art. The artist advocates through her art about the beauty of cultural identity and is interested in creating bonds for connecting people no matter their race, religion, culture, or background by creating awareness of different humanitarian topics. As she comments on her latest work,
"We are an extension of nature, magnifiers of our culture and identity, our skin tell stories about our ancestors, we are our colors, we are our roots, and we're proud".
Jatziri expresses the world around her through both figurative and abstract art since she believes constant exploration feeds her process of creation, the most important aspect of her art is carrying messages and awakening feelings of positiveness, interconnection, and representing individuals at their highest selves.
Jatziri studied at the Glassell School of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston and has done work for institutions like the Witte Museum of San Antonio, many private companies and clients in U.S. and Mexico, and exhibited in places such as the Kinder Morgan Building in Houston Downtown, Silver Street Studios, Glassell building, The Historic Texaco Building Houston, between others.
In actuality you can find the artist at her studio in the Heights, Houston.
