About Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck
Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in rural Oxfordshire, England. She studied at Haute École des Arts du Rhin in France and has led the founding of a number of collaborative initiatives, including the cultural project Poetic Pastel and the publication series Journal du Thé ‒ Contemporary Tea Culture in collaboration with T. S. Wendelstein. Her first book, Daily Practice, was published in 2018 by InOtherWords Imprint. Tagada Hoffbeck's rich body of often semi-autobiographical work — whether painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, film, photography, gardening, and writing — is inspired by her daily life and close observation of nature. Always wishing to generate positivity and positive feelings through her work, Tagada Hoffbeck is focused on building a coherent and singular practice rooted in theories related to Art Therapy, Permaculture, and the Way of Tea.
