Artist spotlight: tara singh
What inspired you to become an artist?
I have always been a creative solution finder. I feel like I have always liked to make things and recognized my expressions as my voice.
How does your personal history relate or show up in the art you produce?
I am a multicultural individual. I was born in Washington D.C. to an American mother and Guyanese father. The influences of Indigenous American Natives, East Indian vibrancy, Caribbean colors and North African symbolism are strongly expressed in my work. I am dedicated to the plight of women globally and the uplifting of the creatives. I strongly believe that artists are historians, creative problem solvers, and without a designer nothing comes into existence.
What do you think are the most important characteristics of your art?
The energy of sensuality and empowerment.
What is the main thing you want your art to communicate?
Indigenous Royalty, that we are all important, exceptional, and magnificent. That we are all HUMAN and process differently, hence my lack of a style… I express what I feel in any given moment.
What makes your process and approach different from that of other artists?
I am not sure. I think that we all have different filters, but I’m not so sure that we have different processes outside of using different media. My approach??? Well I can only tell my story from my perspective, and that is an accumulation of everything that has shaped me, and I think this is unique to every individual.
