Ta is considered by many in the art world as “the one to watch.”
I once said it would be easier for me to walk on the moon than become an artist. Now I'm on the moon and looking down.
I knew from a very early age that I wanted more than the rural farming life which I was born into, I have always been imaginative and creative, sketching whenever I had the chance, and it was all thanks to a cheeky little sketch I did back in 2011 which changed my life. I was given a fantastic opportunity and grabbed it with both hands. That opportunity was art.
I don't live in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cairo, Copenhagen, Dubai, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hamburg, Hong Kong, London, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Malibu Beach, New York, Nice, Paris, Rome, Oslo, Shanghai, Singapore, Tokyo, Zurich, or Taiwan. But I've sent my work there. I've now sent my work to 50 countries I've even sent my work to Kazakhstan.
Someone once said of my work. 'I often wonder why is it that people from around the world acquire Ta's work and speak and write such beautiful things about her art. There has to be something in the painting, something that makes someone want to hang it on their wall and live with it for a long time. I look at Ta's work and whatever the painting, People, Lovers, Goddess or Eggs there is always something. Something that draws in the eye and you can look at it a 1,000 times, and you will still notice something different about it, and that's the answer'.
