Yasmeen Fathima Thantrey is an artist living in London. Having graduated from the University of the Arts London with a BA in Fine Art Sculpture, her practice explores cultural identity, stereotypes and problems she has encountered growing up as a South Asian in the UK. Feminist issues such as body hair and diet culture are also challenged through the eyes of a brown girl. Her work is interdisciplinary, often using mediums that feel appropriate to the topics she is exploring - this ranges from photography, print, performance and film, to installations and soft sculptures.
Her work thrives within social media spaces to generate discourse and collaboration. Yasmeen’s motive also tackles the Eurocentric standards of beauty that have been forcefully ingrained within society and culture.
