Jester Cube by Felix Morelo

Jacqueline Herranz Brooks is a queer writer and educator from Havana, whose creative journey has been shaped by her rich heritage and personal experiences. Currently residing in New York, Jacqueline seamlessly weaves her identity into her work, utilizing the medium of photography and text to craft fictional stories. With a profound understanding of the complexities of decolonization and survival, Herranz Brooks delves deep into her Cuban roots, exploring the history and struggles of her native land. 

Tenjin Ikeda is an Afro-Puerto Rican artist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. At a very young age, he learned the importance of tradition and heritage from his mother. He taught himself how to draw at an early age and was hooked. He has been seriously making art for more than 30 years using the various mediums of painting, sculpture, and printmaking. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York first focusing on graphic design and ultimately Fine Arts where he felt more freedom to express himself. It was at the Art Students League that he discovered printmaking, which has been his focus for more than 20 years. “It is my desire to continue to visibly show the richness of my ancestry to the world.”
