TaSin Sabir joins us to talk about her new book, Madagascar Made. Her artwork can be described as vibrant and full of powerful and emotional messages. Skilled in a range of mediums (including photography, painting, film, web & print design, and screen printing), TaSin uses this love for art making to express topics that are of an importance to her. In 2004 TaSin graduated from California College of the Arts, where she received a BFA in Fine Arts Photography. Born and raised in Oakland, CA, TaSin’s artwork has been exhibited all around the Bay Area and Nation. Such galleries include, The Oakland Museum of California, The African American Historical and Cultural Society Museum, The Richmond Art Center, The Judah Magnes Museum, Pro Arts Gallery, Joyce Gordon Gallery, and the African American Museum in Philadelphia. TaSin has also published another photography book: 100 Families Oakland. In 2007, TaSin took her passion for art and love of her community and opened a galley in Oakland called The Oakpod. During its time The Oakpod was a vital source for art and entertainment in the Bay Area. Since the closure of The Oakpod TaSin has become an independent curator and curated shows for the Joyce Gordon Gallery, Maafa organization and others. Currently TaSin is a freelance photographer and designer specializing in utilizing all her skill sets to create one of a kind projects for her clients.
