Saudi Arabian, B. 1981

Yasmeen AlSudairy is a Saudi Arabian artist based in Jeddah. Her artworks are created from a drifter's mindset, gravitating towards recurring patterns and obscured shapes. She arranges her forms within an organized chaos characterized by a stark contrast in color and repetitive visual rhythms. Motivated by the information overflow of today’s age, Yasmeen attempts to evoke an optical distortion from her daily visual references, aiming to corrupt the subject’s form and intensify its impact.

Yasmeen's artistic process alternates between conscious mark-making and instinctive improvisations. Such results reflect the artist's innermost self in relation to her immediate environment.

Yasmeen completed her Bachelor's degree in Fine Art at the University of Hull, United Kingdom (2005), and went on to complete a Master of Science in Internet Computing (2007). She resumed her education with a Master of Fine Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts in New York (2013). Yasmeen has participated in exhibitions such as the Volta Art Fair, Switzerland (2022), Shara Art Fair, Saudi Arabia (2021), ASHES/ASHES, Los Angeles, USA (2015), The Hole, New York (2014), and Queens Museum, New York (2013). During her academic break, Yasmeen worked on projects including Bidoun Magazine, an online publication focusing on filling the gap between arts and culture coverage in the Middle East, where she was a contributing author. Since 2017, Yasmeen has been working alongside fellow Yemeni artist, Rajaa AlHajj, creating a series of collaborative artworks and sculptures.
