Izzi Vasquez (they/them) is a Chicago-based multimedia artist, designer, and animator from El Paso, TX. As a kid, their Abuela taught them how to create art and mosaics from found and broken objects. Their mosaic work was part of their solo exhibition, “I’ll Plant You A Garden,” in 2023 and featured in the Chicago Reader.

Since relocating to Chicago, they have collaborated with many Chicago area musicians to create album artwork, visuals, and animations and currently co-run Happy Gallery, a community art space in Humboldt Park.
