Johanna Tagada

Tagada studied at the Fine Arts School Haute École des Arts du Rhin (HEAR - France). In addition to fine arts and textile, Tagada is interested in literature, tea culture, cinema, languages, plants, ecology, traveling, ethnology, colonial and post-colonial history. Her interdisciplinary body of work is composed of painting, drawing, photography, film, publishing, sculpture, textile and installation while her practice is intertwined with the notion of happiness and feelings of wellness.

With her rich body of often semi-autobiographical work, Tagada generates positivity through her work, deriving inspirations from her daily life and experience, as well as from close observation of nature. Theories related to Art Therapy and the Way of Tea are also at the root of her practice. Working and exploring across mediums such as painting, drawing, textiles, sculpture, photography, publishing and installation pieces, the artist is building a coherent and singular body of work, often described as poetic and delicate.
