Visual artist and Leeds based rising star Yasmina is on a roll. With no end to the admirers of her versatile talent, Yasmina skilfully creates unique and provocative pieces incorporating a wide variety of media, using a broad-minded and multi-disciplinary approach. She cites her passions as drawing from the realms the dark, macabre, historical and curious to create beautifully colourful and inspiring drawings, paintings, collages and prints.
Currently operating from a theatrical studio space above Distrikt bar in Leeds city centre, where Yasmina is the first and only resident artist, she tells us; “It is here that I create a miscellany of artwork for many purposes. I procure commission work through word of mouth and recommendation and I approach all of my personal commissions with a well-researched, strong concept and theme tailored with sensitivity towards my client’s demands. I have completed many large scale paintings directly onto building interiors as well as paintings and one-off costumes and garments.”
