Tania Wursig is a painter and textile designer from Australia. She was born in Sydney and has lived in both Sydney and Tahiti for the past decade.
Her work can best be described as a celebration of life, nature, and the “feminine.” Her paintings are imbued with strong cultural influences inspired by her travels and her exposure to the Tahitian people and traditions.
Tania Wursig graduated from Sydney College of the Arts majoring in fashion and textile design. During her time there she experimented with the textural possibilities of painting on collaged surfaces of textiles, coconut husk, postcards, and various ephemera collected on her travels. These grounds add narrative to the paintings connecting the subjects with culture and place.
Wursig’s work has been shown around the world including France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, U.K., USA, Hawaii, and Tahiti where she currently lives.
