TBIRD: Tarli Bird's art practice involves creating artworks that communicate the vibrance of our surrounding world. Since graduating from Monash University with a Masters in Fine Art, Bird has been exhibiting regularly around Australia and undertaking artist in residencies.
Bird is inspired by traditional artists and a love for travelling. Like many she is used to being constantly connected to her iPhone and as a result finds herself constantly lost overseas with an inability to read maps correctly. As a result she wanders and captures these wanderings with photos.
Conflicting patterns from these photos emerge with an attraction to the planned urban environment and the nourishing beauty of the native environment. This inspiration is used to create artworks that help stimulate interiors so that they emulate our surrounding world .
Bird has been a finalist in the world wide Stencil Art Prize for the past five years and used her printing style to work on commissions for iconic Melbourne venues including the Abbotsford Convent and Melbourne Central Shopping Centre.
TBIRD works on commissions for collectors who have a specific interior colour palette they are needing an artwork to compliment.
