Tanja Davey

Tanja Davey, born in Pongola, Kwazulu Natal in 1980, is an artist based in Kwazulu Natal and currently resides on Durban’s North Coast. As a full-time artist, her work predominantly leans towards intuition and abstraction.

Utilizing shapes, colors, and gestural markings, she infuses her artworks with emotion. Tanja intentionally avoids labeling her abstract pieces, aiming for viewers to have their own personal, emotional, and spiritual responses to her art. In addition to her abstract work, she explores painting flora and fauna, expressing her deep connection and love for the natural world.

In 1999, Tanja Davey relocated to Mozambique with her parents, where she later met her husband Scott in 2003. Over the next 15 years, they traveled and lived in various African countries, including Mozambique, Zambia, and Malawi, considering each place home. The couple returned to South Africa in 2019 when Tanja decided to concentrate on advancing her art career by merging her passion for abstract art with wildlife themes.

In 2023, Tanja Davey's career gained momentum with successful participation in various group exhibitions and art shows. Her signature style combines diverse elements of art. She aims to create and layer an engaging and distinctive abstract background highlighted by her characteristic 'scribbles.' This background is then seamlessly integrated with her interpretation of abstract wildlife, resulting in artwork that is both unique and powerful—a one-of-a-kind creation.

Tanja Davey's art is showcased at The Artists Gallery in Cape Town.
