Bio: Tanya Davanzo studied drawing and painting at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. She specializes in portrait painting, and is influenced by European modernism and modern American portraiture. She was chosen as an “Artist of Hawaii” at the Honolulu Museum of Art, has exhibited her works across the islands, and has had several solo shows. Her artwork is in private collections in Hawaii, the mainland United States and in Europe.
In my recent work, I have found a sense of freedom and personal expression through the combination of spray painting and graffiti techniques combined with drawing and more traditional brush painting. Lines, like signatures, add a sense of identity and biography to these current portraits.
