Yasemin Şenel was born in 1953. She graduated from the Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Liège (Belgium) in 1978. She lives and works in Brussels and has had numerous exhibitions since 1977. She was awarded the Liard prize in 1976 and the Jamar prize in 1978.
Since the late 1970s, she has lived and studied art in Belgium. Turkish art critic Sezer Tansuğ defined Yasemin Şenel, who has lived a good part of her life in Belgium, as a "color virtuoso". Yasemin Şenel is looking for intersections with the local culture she comes from and the human touch of a foreign culture.
She is trying to find the base of the passions hidden by the human being, a universal being. Emotions hidden in the dark world of consciousness take on the rich and colorful vibrations that a Freudian analysis can reveal in Şenel's paintings.
Yasemin Şenel is ranked 76th among the list of "1000 living artists of our times" evaluated and published by a group of Dutch art authorities and collectors.
Her works are in private collections in Turkey, Germany, London, France, Italy and Belgium, Pasabahçe Glass Industry (Turkey), the Foundation pour l'Art Document Contemporain (Belgium)
