Grand Rapids, MI
Jasmine Bruce is a Grand Rapids, Michigan native who uses a variety of mediums and methods to express her inner, outward and worldly experiences. Inspired by illustrators like Ben Shahn she agrees that, “one of the most important things we can do as humans is to participate in society in order to better the human spirit as a whole, if you aren’t participating then what’s the point?”
Interested in themes of racial oppression and liberation, Bruce always conveys a sense of connectedness and curiosity of the human spirit through her work. She plans to continue to use her art as a tool for thinking, speaking and searching for peaceful resolutions.
