Yasmin Golshani is an Iranian artist born in Hamburg in 1967, living and working in Prague. She has been a Prague Artists Association (NSPU) member since 2020 and has held numerous exhibitions in Iran, Armenia, France, England, Dubai, the Czech Republic, the USA, and India. One of her artworks is on display in the permanent collection of the Sergei Parajanov Museum in Yerevan, Armenia. She has participated in the traveling exhibition, The Veil, Visible and Invisible Spaces, curated by Jennifer Heath, that toured various cities in America for five years starting in 2008. After studying painting at the Faculty of Arts of Al-Zahra University in Tehran, Iran, and obtaining a bachelor's degree, she immigrated to France in 1996, which provided her a new opportunity to look at her country, Iran, and its issues from a distance. At the same time, the issue of self-censorship, despite living in a democratic environment and daily conflict with it, became the subject of her works. During this time, she lived in Paris. She pursued her studies at Paris 8 University (Vincennes-Saint-Denis) in 1997/1998, then Pantone Sorbonne, where she was awarded first place in the field of "visual arts-plastique et sciences de l'art "in 2003 – DEA (diploma d'etudes approfondies).

One of her early installation projects, "Eyes," was created using Persian newspapers in 1997. "We are all surrounded by Eyes" is one of this series. Her artworks captured the collective memory of the era in which she lived.

The duality, the symbol of twins and the conjoined twins has been the subject of a series of videos, photos, and installations of her artworks. In 2005, she received a UNESCO Residence Fellowship for artists at the historic center of Civitella Ranieri castle in Italy. 

In 2013, she was offered to referee selected artists from UNESCO for the Civitella Ranieri Centre. She was one of the 34 finalists in the 2007 Sovereign European Art Prize at the Bonhams Auction, and from 2008 to 2011, she was one of the artists of the Candlestar Arts organization in London, England.

 Yasmin Golshani held a 6-month exhibition about the Universal Declaration of the Rights of the Child at the Amazement Square Children's Museum in Lynchburg, Virginia, USA, in 2019. In 2021, she had a solo exhibition at the Gallery of the Prague Artists Association Antonin Navratil and was asked to design a series of installations to decorate the stage used for the Blatno International Music Festival.

After the revolution of "Life, Woman, Freedom" starting from September 2022, she has been working on many art projects to support and show solidarity with her country people. Including some exhibitions in Kladno Castle, Roztoky Museum and University of Ostrava, all in the Czech Republic.
