Elizabeth E. Baez Puerto Rican Artist

Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
Art Exhibits and Presenter

Elizabeth Erazo Baez is a Latina artist who is known for her ability to capture the cultural emotional nuances of the Puerto Rican experience. Baez's visually stimulating art of folklore, tradition and nostalgia are rich in color, texture and emotion. On her tapestry of possibilities, Baez depicts Latin- centric contemporary art as well as luminous landscapes, proactive portraits, still lives and vibrant cultural realities. For example in her painting "La Fiesta Plena" the artist shares the rich tradition of story telling through song, dance and drumming celebrating the Afro Latin traditions of Puerto Rico.

Born in Brooklyn, New York of Puerto Rican parents, Baez celebrates her bicultural perspective as a NewYorican who had the fortunate opportunity to grow up both in New York City and in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. According to Baez, "I wasn't born in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was born in me." Her distinctive bicultural perspective collides vibrantly on her palette with great detail. In her technique she captures the soul of each painting by weaving brush strokes into feelings of hope, pride and sometimes despair. "Art calls at me. It calls for me to express and to evoke passion." "It is my connection with God, which is why it must be shared, says Baez.

Currently living in Miami, Florida Baez
is both a wife and a mother of two young children. Inspired by her own family, Baez decided to formally introduce her artwork to the public in 2000 in Coral Gables. Since her debut Baez's work has been displayed at: Miami City Hall; the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration; Orlando City Hall and Miami-Dade County, Hispanic Affairs Advisory Board's "Hispanic Art Expressions 2005" to name a few. Through her art, Baez is also a community change agent committed service and the cultural preservation and advancement of Puerto Rican art globally.
