  • Biography

    Multidisciplinary Melbourne artist Tannia Taranto began her creative career as a Graphic Artist and
    Producer in television commercial production, working intermediately on animation and live action shoots. Having formerly studied visual arts at her secondary college, she reacquainted herself with the discipline by exhibiting early works in local charity fundraiser events in 2012. Deciding to immerse herself entirely in the venture, she resigned from her corporate work life in 2021 to focus her efforts to her establishing home studio.

    Initially producing a series of portrait and figurative pieces, with the utilisation of monochromatic colour palettes and evocative female forms, these works explore complex human diversities and emotional constructs. At the same time, she began experimenting with an array of alternative mediums, that eventually included resin, ink and plaster, the later a homage to her father’s trade profession. With the utilisation of plaster and acrylic as her preferred medium, the EVOLUTION relief series examines organic elements in the form of sculpted, heavily texturised contemporary pieces. Reflecting on the spinal structure of sea urchins to the timing of tree ring configurations and root systems, unifying segments of land and sea.

    Specialising in several mediums and disciplines, Tannia Taranto has sold her works across Australia and around the world, participated in a diverse selection of group exhibitions across metropolitan Melbourne and creative collaborations with CATA (Creative Art Therapy Australia). She is an active member of Melbourne & Victorian Artists Inc. and previously a member with Diamond Valley based artist network TAM (Thou Art Mum). Her works are also available through exclusive retailers across Australia.
