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.
