Yasmin Aishah is a UK based visual artist primarily working with acrylic/oil paints, ink and pencil. The artist uses these materials to celebrate the organic and unrecognised female form, using her work to empower women to feel seen and represented.
Initially when I began my venture into the world of painting, I explored the relationship between colour and self-perception. Using colour theory to explore common insecurities on canvas. This journey over the course of a year started to turn into something more self-diaristic, using my own self-perspective to relate to other women and recognise and celebrate one another.
A passion for presenting bigger bodies in order for them to be recognised as objects of beauty and validity, creating works that ignore classic standards and unattainable goals.
This work is for every woman that has not felt seen or validated in both the body and self, an inclusion of the excluded.
