katia hernández velasco

︎ emily carr university of art +design. vancouver,canada. 2014-2019.
my name is katia hernández velasco, i am a bitter-soft brown femme, philosopher and interdisciplinary art producer. i am an uninvited guest in the occupied and unceded Coast Salish territories, vancouver. i come from a family of peasants in central méxico but grew up in mexico city, far from the land. i look for a path to get back to my roots through my art practice.
my practice follows the same principles that my ancestors taught me: solidarity, collaboration and horizontality. my art is a tool to raise the voices that colonialism attempted to erase.
my mediums are mainly serigraphy, graphic design, illustration and textile.
i am interested in multi-media collaborations and horizontal story-telling.
