Tatyana Murray: In the Woods
As young children we always fantasized through imagination and fairytales. British artist Tatyana Murray captures those real life fantasies through her sculptures and paintings at the BOIS Contemporary. As a self-taught artist, Murray’s inspirations came from children’s books such as Lord of the Flies and The Grimm Brothers. Most of her artwork at the exhibit shows a darker side of Murray’s artwork.
