    Ep.149 Dr. Jasmine Pradissitto - Ministry of Arts Podcast

    In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Dr. Jasmine Pradissitto (@jasmine_pradissitto)
     
    Pradissitto was born in Taunton, Somerset, to an Italian father and a French mother. She would travel to Italy in the summer as a child and has said she sees Italy as her spiritual home. She has said her interest in art started with copying from nature picture books and encyclopaedias, before she took an interest in comic books and graphic novels.
    Pradissitto obtained a PhD from University College London on the quantum behaviour of silicon in fibre optics in 1996. Whilst at UCL, she simultaneously studied a foundation degree in fine art at Goldsmiths College, taking classes during evenings. She subsequently completed a BA in fine art at the Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design in 2006, where she undertook two years of printmaking.
    Influences for her work include the worlds of science and art, ancient Greek mythology, mythopoetry, technology and the Anthropocene world. Pradissitto has said how her son suffering an asthma attack in 2016 also served as an inspiration for her artwork and its focus on clean air and more sustainable ways of living.
