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, as well as the first public artwork to be commissioned for the entrance hall of Dulwich Picture Gallery, Tantra’s work has been exhibited at numerous international biennials, art fairs and in group exhibitions such as A New Paradise at the Saatchi Gallery in London (2022), Framer Framed (2020) in Amsterdam, the Karachi Biennale (2019), the Folkestone Triennial UK (2017) and the Liverpool Biennial UK (2012).
Tantra’s work is part of the UK Government Art Collection, Museum MACAN, Jakarta; Tumurun Museum, Solo, Louis Vuitton Collection and other private international collections.
