About Ermelinda Cortes

Ermelinda “ErmeArt” Cortes exhibits currently in the United States, Europe, Canada and Puerto Rico. ErmeArt’s paintings and illustrations harmonize her Asian/AfroLatinx Culture with literature, myth and fantasy. Her photograph and films reflect on her Taino ancestry and love affair with the city of her birth, New York.

Erme’s documentary “We are Still Here, The Taino Lives!” has won an Excellence Award at the Rincon International Film Festival and won “Official Selection” status at the Los Angeles CineFest Film Festival.

“Whether it is with my paintbrush or my camera, I guide the narrative while allowing the creative force of the work to guide me. When it comes to my illustrations or paintings, I work with many mediums, watercolor, oil, acrylics and pastels on canvas or paper. Nature, literature and my Afro Latinx culture fuel my inspiration. I love giving a classic subject new life on canvas. Photography enables me to reveal diverse New York City perspectives. Photography intersects with my love of filmmaking. With my documentary films, I reflect history/society to reveal culture from a new perspective.”

Creativity is limitless, to experiment, create and provoke in diverse mediums is ErmeArt’s dream and legacy.
