About Yasmin P. Karim

Yasmin P. Karim born in Arusha, Tanzania with the backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro, moved to Canada in the 1970.

She is a non-narrative experimental director and animator who has been actively making and exhibiting art for sixteen years. Her filmography includes short film My Mountain, 7 Cycles, and the AMPIA award winning SIJJIL.

Yasmin inspires audiences with her organic process using the principles of nature. Her approach combines the physical science and spiritual science together with opposites states such as living and inanimate, beauty with tention, colour as light and texture with movement to create abstract symbolic art.

Yasmin’s current work is about symbols that go beyond the physical outward experiences, to explore the hidden sublime beauty of nature.
