Awkward Chat is the chosen artist name of Yasmin Bridges as her work is an invitation to ￼talk about traditionally awkward topics. Her multidisciplinary work is predominantly focused ￼on behind the scenes stories. Awkward Chat’s innate curiosity has been influenced by her previous studies in fashion design and the recent global marketing trend of “greenwashing”. The concepts are sometimes things that she wants to talk about, but struggles to articulate with words and a picture comes to mind. Value, stories, connection, perceptions, marketing propaganda and our environment are themes that are woven throughout her work. Awkward Chat’s most recent collection of pop surrealism drawings was her way of giving herself a voice: she created a visual conversation.
