Yasmin Arshad was born in 1975 and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has attended Gateway Arts since 1996.
Arshad loves color, especially shades of blue, and has devised a personal way of sequencing colors and numbers onto grids. She is fascinated by the millennium, and employs the motif “129999″ in her work as a reference to eternity. Arshad uses her artistic approach to communicate her own language to the world. Her paintings allow her to be heard in a way she was not before.
Arshad’s work has been exhibited in Massachusetts at The Gateway Gallery, the Berenberg Gallery in Boston, and Drive-by Projects in Watertown, and in New York City at Cooper Union, the Outsider Art Fair, and the Phoenix Gallery. She has also shown at the Museum of Everything in London, the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan and Creativity Explored in San Francisco.
