Taya Biggs | Zip Pouch
TAYA BIGGS is a Barkindji Artist living in Menindee, far west NSW. Since fIrst being introduced to painting at school, Taya has not stopped making art, she is one of the most prolific and hardworking artists of far west New South Wales.
“I’d rather be making art than anything else, It’s an escape from life’s busyness, it’s my happy and peaceful place.”
Beyond being a personal escape, Taya’s art is a deeply intimate window in to her connection to country, family, culture and the elements. She combines traditional practices and family symbols, with contemporary materials and colour schemes, weaving visions of the past, present and future.
“The land inspires me; Menindee, the river, my family, I use family symbols, tracks.”
