Yasmine Djedje-Fisher-Azoume is a freelance animator based in London, currently working as a producer at an independent animation studio. Her animation work is typically a blend of digitally drawn 2D animation, traditional paper animation and analogue techniques, and draws thematic and aesthetic influences principally from her West African (Ivorian) heritage. African wood carvings, bronze sculptures and ceremonial relics, the textures and colours of textiles and traditional dress are all foundational sources that have informed the evolving direction of her practice.
Djedje-Fisher-Azoume recently developed a short animated film as part of RAFTS (2023), a collaboration with the Turner Prize shortlisted artist Rory Pilgrim. In 2021, she was commissioned by the V&A to produce a new animation as part of the Alice: Curioser and Curioser exhibition.
