Nilupa Yasmin is an award-winning artist and educator with a primarily lens-based practice. She explores the principles of art and craft and the expanded materiality within photography.
The artist is interested in the notion of culture, self-identity, and anthropology. Whilst investigating ideals and traditions that are close to home, she repeatedly draws upon her own identity through gender, religion and her British Bangladeshi culture and heritage. An element of her practice focuses on socially engaged photography, she works collaboratively with various communities to produce and curate works of Art.
Within her educational programme she implements and highlights feminist narratives focusing on women of colour, alongside offering an alternative perspective to westernised art books.
Yasmin’s work is included in many permanent and private collections including Government Art Collection, The New Art Gallery Walsall and Birmingham Museums Collection. She is Lecturer in Photography at Coventry University and recently completed her MA in Photography Arts at University of Westminster.
Nilupa is a studio holder at Grand Union, Birmingham.
