Redeye's Snapshots are a series of skill sharing workshops, offering quick insights into artists’ work through their use of creative processes and techniques.
Nilupa Yasmin is an artist and educator known for her beautiful, intricately constructed artworks and large-scale installations. The weaving of photographs is core to her practice, and in this workshop she will talk through her use of the process and how it shaped her work, followed by a demonstration of the weaving technique.
Nilupa Yasmin (b.1995) is an Artist and Educator. Working primarily lens based, Yasmin takes a keen interest in the notion of culture, self-identity and anthropology. Combined with her love for handcraft and the materiality in photographic explorations, she repeatedly connects upon her own South Asian culture and heritage. Continually drawing upon what it means to be a British Bangladeshi Muslim Woman, she aims to create a space of representation for the underrepresented, through her photographic practise.
Yasmin graduated from Coventry University in 2017, winner of the Photo Monitor prize. Her work has been exhibited in Photofusion, London (2019); Format Fringe, Derby (2019); Coventry Biennial (2019); Herbert Art Gallery (2019) and Argentea Gallery (2017); recently having work acquired as part of The New Arts Gallery Walsall’s Collections. She is a Visiting Lecturer at Coventry University and is currently working towards a solo show at MAC Birmingham for 2021.
