Yasmine Iskander is a 25-year-old intuitive abstract artist. She works primarily with acrylics on canvas and on paper.
Her art is passionate and direct. It captures the vibrancy of her extraordinary life journey and her personal interpretation of the world around her.
Yasmine prefers acrylics, which are particularly suited to her colorist talent. She loves to paint on large canvases or paper as larger surfaces best enable her to express her creativity and boldness.
Over the last four years, Yasmine has participated in several juried exhibitions including The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, NJ; Viridian Artists Gallery and Manhattan International Arts, NY; Hamilton Gallery, Baltimore, MD; and the Athenaeum Gallery, Torpedo Factory, Del Ray Artisans and MPAartfest, VA.
In 2018, she received Second Prize in the Kennedy Center VSA Emerging Young Artist national program. Her piece “Dragon” toured the country as part of an exhibition entitled DETOUR which culminated at The Kennedy Center Hall of States. An image of this winning artwork was also part of a public art installation at the Kennedy Center’s REACH campus.
Yasmine has been featured in Good Morning Washington (WJLA), Elan Magazine, Fairfax County Public Schools YouTube, the University of Minnesota Institute of Community Integration Impact Magazine and several local newspapers. Her collectors are in several states in the U.S., Europe and throughout Latin America and include individuals and large corporations such as Amazon, Google, Carr Company, Citizens Bank and Fifth Third Bank.
