Jazamin is a professional multidisciplinary artist and musician who lives and works in Liverpool. Her artistic practice is made up of painting, drawing, photography, design, music, organising exhibitions, performance, writing and facilitating workshops; for this summer show at dot-art she has developed a new series of semi-autobiographical drawings.
The artist has a degree in Fine Art from UWIC, Cardiff, where, at her degree show, the painting “Hot Pepper Sauce” was awarded The Welsh Assembly’s Award for Fine Art. As part of her studies, in 2001, Jazamin travelled to Italy for three months after receiving the Dulcie Mayne Stephens Award and studied as part of an Erasmus exchange at L’Accademia di Belle art, and now regularly exhibits her artwork. She aims to photograph, draw and paint everyday objects; things that you find on a table or in the bathroom or rusty objects or flowers passed on the street; trying to highlight things that jump out at her as an artist, but that other people may not notice.
She says: “I strive to bring out the beauty in whatever I create (and there is beauty everywhere if you look for it) whilst hopefully also giving people things to think about. I have been around art, music, design and performance all of my life and I was encouraged to question everything from an early age. The artwork I have created for this exhibition is made up of semi-autobiographical illustrative drawings. I have used Indian ink & acrylic paint on either paper or canvas. I have only recently started to create such storyboard illustrations and I have developed my ideas further to create a whole new body of work specifically for this exhibition.”
