Tanita is a multidisciplinary artist and architect based in Oakland, California. She is inspired by nature and the built environment, and her work approaches a cross pollination of the simple nuances of life as abstracted visuals.
She loves elements in nature like rain, fog, trees and the rustle of leaves and has an appreciation for how they interplay with objects such as stone, brick, windows. As someone that has lived and traveled across continents, she often strives to evoke the sense of place and belonging using unisex human figures.
Tanita’s work expresses the human expression through two mediums – the tactile, stationary stills of paintings and the movement of these paintings through soothing animations.
