Yasmin Noorbakhsh (b. 1978 Iran) is a multidisciplinary artist based in London. She has studied both in Iran and the U.K. and is currently doing a Master Degree in Fine Art at City and Guilds of London Art School. Her practice relates strongly with transcultural identity, displacement, and living with the uncertain feelings of life "in-between". Yasmin's source of inspiration pays attention to history, human beliefs and culture and also effects of post-revolutionary Iran including the Iran-Iraq war.

Artist Statement

With uncertainty being the core of her practice, in her multifaceted layers and complex surfaces Yasmin tries to depict the state of being in-between two spaces. Between known and unknown, pleasant and unpleasant  and how sometimes the two are interwoven to each other. She borrows elements from Persian traditional art and history and fuses them with elements of Modern art creating a strong sense of friction and collision. “My marks cannot exist only with rational thinking, there are controlled moments but also intuitive and loose too. All elements that I work with participate and engage in an experiment, an experiment of finding hope in chaos”, she says.

Her current work depicts artist’s personal experience of movement and change but also the transcultural movement. It is about people uprooted by choice or by force as they try to create new identities in an unstable and changeable world. It tries to examine human connection to place and identity, both as a group and also as individuals. 
“The red Grid is almost the most important device here and not only I enjoy the equalising and democratically of it but here the geometry has become a form that leaks and complete then becomes something of a subjective encounter. This is when containers and grids fail, when everything burst through regardless of potential of confinement or being kept safe", she states.

She was recently one of the selected artists to present at ‘Human Perspective’ exhibition at Cambridge University/Cauis College in October 2021.
