Tanja Truscott

Tanja Truscott is a South African artist, born in the Netherlands. She attended Stellenbosch University and graduated in graphic design. After a stint in advertising, a few years of teaching art and two decades in educational publishing, she turned to painting full time in 2014.
 

Her artwork is born from a fascination with painterly abstraction and the power it has to engage us visually and emotionally. She is inspired by literature, poetry and music, but just as easily by rain pelting the studio or a landscape remembered. Any of these can be the impetus for the colours and tools she chooses, the marks she makes and the shapes that emerge, as they obliquely inform the content.

 
Tanja currently works from Eastside Studios in Salt River, Cape Town. She is represented by Candice Berman Gallery in Johannesburg and has exhibited in several group shows, most recently at the Barnard Gallery Nano 1.3.
