Tamlin Blake

Tamlin is a mixed-media artist. Visually and conceptually, her newspaper tapestries explore how the identities of individuals are affected by the lives of others, how their stories insinuate themselves into our reality and affect our thinking and belief structures.

For this year’s Solo Studios, Tamlin, in collaboration with Cape Town artist Robyn Pretorius, explores how we maintain the integrity of traditional art-making practices while embracing future technologies such as augmented-reality artworks and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

Tamlin holds a master’s in fine art from the University of Stellenbosch. She has exhibited extensively at home and abroad, and is an associated artist with the Everard Read Gallery. She is chief curator for the Spier Arts Trust.
