The Gold Current by Yasmin

My Story

 

I'm a mixed media artist, dancer, and user experience designer based in Austin, TX. I grew up in a multi-ethnic blended family, which has informed my journey through my creative careers. In my mixed media cyanotypes, I work with botanical material, collage and ink, to explore themes of memory and life cycles while delving into the often fragile human connection to oneself, community and the Natural World. My work uses symbolism, organic and geometric shapes, light and dark, pattern and color to create striking moments of visual juxtaposition, movement, and pleasure.

My art has shown in group exhibitions around Central Texas, featured in publications such as Tribeza and on the cover of Almost Real Things, and currently hangs in private collections as well as in Austin’s City Hall. This May, I was selected as one of Saatchi Art’s 5 Artists Not to Miss at The Other Art Fair, Dallas 2021.

 

Fun Fact: I hold software patents.

In the corporate world, I have built an extensive career as a User Experience (UX) Designer & Manager designing enterprise-level software, websites, iPhone and iPad applications. I hold several software patents and, in general, can easily nerd out on the topic of design.

Fun Fact: I performed at Lollapalooza.

I have performed in large festivals, theaters, and concert venues around the world with Thievery Corporation, Govinda and Sabaya Bellydance Collective.
