Sinta Tantra 1979, New York
A British artist of Balinese descent, Tantra spent her childhood in Indonesia, America and the UK where she studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and the Royal Academy Schools. Known for her colourful geometric paintings and site-specific murals, many in the public realm, Tantra’s work explores ‘painting on an architectural scale’. The first recipient of the Bridget Riley Drawing Fellowship at the British School at Rome, previous commissions include The Contemporary Art Society, Folkestone Triennial, Karaachi Biennale and Canary Wharf London. Tantra’s paintings are part of the Government Art Collection, the Benetton Foundation collection and other private international collections.
