  • Biography
Ayshia Taskin is an Intermedia artist with a practice spanning a multitude of techniques like building performative sculptures, latex modelling, digital art, moving image, VR world-building, printmaking, installation, web-based and Livestream/VR/Crypto-performance art and Blockchain NFT culture.

Her practice focuses on the use and merging of high- and low-tech production methods. For her, all methods playfully explored and experimented. Within her video work, Ayshia uses aesthetic ‘corruption’, glitch, 3D modelling software, generative, greenscreen, AI and data-bending to merge sci-fi and mythology with the interplay of both sides of technology by mixing the digital with analogue techniques.

Ayshia’s works have been shown in Venice [Surfaces Festival], The Festival of Contemporary Art in Athens, Ely Centre for Contemporary Art, USA, Screen-print Biennial, USA, Transcultural Exchange in Boston, Dfbrll8r Gallery at Zhou B Art Centre in Chicago, Taos Centre for the Arts, New Mexico, Hidden Door Festival, Edinburgh, Glasgow International Art Festival, Performance Køkkenet, Copenhagen, Zembla Gallery, Scotland, Noemata/#biennale.no, Bangkok Biennial, Thailand, Galerie XY, Olomouc, Czech Republic, MoWNA Biennial, New York and many virtual exhibitions.

During the summer of 2019, Ayshia developed [SHIFT:ibpcpa]; an independent performance art biennale which, in association with The Wall Space Gallery, showcases the work of international artists using web-based Crypto, VR and Livestream technologies.

As well as curate shows, Ayshia collects NFT and Crypto artworks from a variety of Blockchain platforms and cryptocurrencies. Her interest in NFT and Crypto Art stems from the decentralised nature and accessibility the space offers. Her curiosity lays in what the space could evolve to become for society
