Tannia Taranto is a self-taught contemporary artist who is inspired by the world of fashion and nude photography; finding to balance the rawness and power of the female body with a sophisticated and aesthetic portrayal. Tannia purposefully limits the use of colour in her work to evoke an emotion or mood. Her composition uses a limited palette of black, white and a selected colour to capture the beauty and strength of the female form.
Tannia uses a variety of mediums predominately using acrylics, graphite, inks and resin. Besides her portrait and figurative work Tannia has recently ventured into abstract art, taking her inspiration from nature, architecture and interior design.
It was a suggestion from a friend that motivated Tannia to submit her artwork into various charity fundraising events. Her art was so well received at auction that it inspired her to realise the significance of her work “It was such an emotional and overwhelming event, to be able to auction my artwork to the Art Cabriolet and supportart therapies to children experiencingpersonal trauma”
In 2018, Tannia turned her passion into a business selling her original pieces, giclée prints, working on commissioned pieces and the opportunity of becoming a recent member of Thou Art Mum.Tannia is excited to be involved with agroup of like-minded female artists and the prospect of actively exhibiting her work, collaborating within the community and where her artistic journey will take her.
