Tania Iskiw is a Toronto-born artist who specializes in surrealist automatism (painting and drawing). She has an Honors Bachelor of Arts from The University of Western Ontario (majoring in Visual Arts and Psychology). Most works focus on time span, layering, and demystification.

“The paintings I make focus on the effects of ambiance on technique (as they are often made in strange or loud places). In some works, it is important to see one subject as a fraction of another and viewers are forced to shift focus and discover hidden scenarios. Although most of the works include figurative elements, the process is a contingent one intended to exemplify my own shifts in focus while painting.” - Tania Iskiw
