Jasmin Anoschkin (b. 1980) is a Helsinki-based sculptor, who graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Finland in 2004. The artist, who has been described as an effervescent expressionist, sculpts wood with axes and chainsaws and ceramics with a fierce touch. Her pieces are rough and rooted in the imaginary worlds of childhood, play and toys. Anoschkin had her first solo exhibition in 2003, after which she has exhibited her works on several occasions both in Finland and abroad (e.g. at Taidehalli, Purnu, Lönnströmin taidemuseo, Galleria Sculptor, Washington D.C., Nice and Berlin). In 2012 Anoschkin was elected as the Young Artist of Satakunta and in 2014 she became a member of the Arabia Art Department Society. Her works can be found at e.g. the collections of WAM, the Niemistö Collection of Hämeenlinna Art Museum, Vantaa Art Museum, The Paulon Foundation, Lönnströmin taidemuseo and the collections of the Finnish state.
