Nadia Asencio is a Cuban-American artist, playwright, and US Army veteran based in Harlem, NYC. Born and raised in Hartford, CT, her unique expression in the visual and performing arts combines elements of her Euro-Caribbean roots with street art, expressionism, pop art, and the abstract to evoke both introspection and social consciousness as it applies to female gender roles and the feminine psyche. She is represented by Saphira & Ventura Gallery, NYC.
