Ayshia Taskin [ a y s h ] is an Intermedia artist who merges high and lo-tech methods to create physical and performative latex-y sculptural forms, digital artworks using 3D, glitch and live performance. She is obsessed with the body in its many fleshy and non-fleshy forms, mythology, symbolism, futurism and deconstructing ancient things. [ a y s h ] is a cultural and creative nomad.

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.

In 2018-19, Ayshia developed the concept of Cypro-Futurism and is currently working on a variety of projects which include a visual book exploring Near-Eastern Cypro-Futurism through sentient vegetables and moving image pieces utilising the mechanical body and Cyborgs.

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 as a whole and artists working across a variety of mediums.

[ a y s h ] currently lives and works in the virtual paradise realm.
