Jayelle Lopez

  • Jayelle Lopez is a Trans-Woman. A Latina. These identities inspire most of what she does as a creative. Exploring said identities and how she can relate them to her experiences to create work that simply connects to her on a deeply personal and spiritual level is her purpose. Lopez spent a lot of her life asking questions through a gag. The unwilling ears to those questions have given her an opportunity to not only ask the questions she wants, but to also seek and find the answers she needs. Her art has given her a chance to find those answers. As an artist, she seeks to answer questions that she was denied answers to, answers that are necessary for her growth. The conservative Latin environment in which Lopez grew up was the catalyst for her curiosity. She says,” My journey to love myself despite the things I missed for a majority of my life being so pensive I decided to use it as fuel for what I put out into the world. To create a narrative that is personal, yet relatable. In the hopes that the spirit of my work will resonate with anyone who will happen upon it.”
