YASMIN SINAI

Born 1969

Tehran, Iran

Yasmin’s material of choice is paper, which is symbolic of her overall aesthetic and approach to personal expression: Paper is both strong and delicate and can be manipulated to take on myriad forms.

 

Sinai mixes paper and cardboard to create dynamic and immersive installations and dramatic sculptures, often forming narrative scenes that feel both realistic and whimsical.

 

Sinai’s artistic practice primarily draws on ancient Persian traditions of storytelling and performance, presenting contemporary heroines and female warriors in this context.​​

Yasmin’s work has been exhibited worldwide and she is one of the fifty contemporary artists currently featured at LACMA Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s “In the Field of Empty Days: The Intersection of Past and Present in Iranian Art."
