Tanja Lategan

“Art brings me to a peaceful and happy space. It calms me”.

After leaving the tourism industry Tanja turned to art full time, switching her medium of oils and acrylics to watercolours, ink and pen.

Tanja feels connected to the healing vibes that nature provides on her regular excursions into the forest to draw inspiration from organic shapes and vibrant colours.

Her work depicts the symbiotic relationship between man and nature in a contemporary style. She favours minimal compositions and strives to capture the essence of her subject matter continuously. Her playful nature is depicted in the feminine and whimsical details of her creations.

Her ideal future heritage would be one of harmonious mutual acceptance and open-mindfulness.
