This could be an illustration, text-based, collage etc...The pieces will then be collected by SHEAfriq who will compile the responses into a of a new zine: Art Dates which will also feature artistic responses from Art Dates at Nottingham Contemporary. The zine will be released in March 2019.

Hello! I'm Jasmin Issaka. I love being creative, which is why you'll find me either being a soul-singer songwriter and guitarist; an artist, but most of the time a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I use my wonderfully weird vibrant visual style to create illustrations of sceneries, strange ideas in my head and subjects from my own experiences.
All are welcome
