An example of fine art by Vivian Tanga

I am a representational artist based in Baltimore, Maryland. My work encompasses portrait, still life, and figure. 
I graduated from Columbia University in 2016 with a degree in Russian Language. Foreign language and Slavic studies were enormous sources of interest for me, but ultimately I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a realist painter and enrolled at the Schuler School of Fine Art in Baltimore. I graduated after four years of intensive studio practice in May 2020. 
My key drive when painting is to create work that feels alive. Through a dedication to masterful draftsmanship and knowledge of form and light, I seek to add my unique perspective to the tradition of representational art.
