Tanja Gant: show me the attitude! Interview with realist colored pencil artist


Show me the attitude! Interview with Tanja Gant, colored pencil artist

I’ve been following Tanja Gant’s art for many years. She is one of the top hyperrealist colored pencil artists working today. Every time I open social media I see yet another major award taken by the artist. I think Tanja collects them all like candy on Halloween. But in all seriousness, Tanja’s drawings mesmerize me with their unique point of view, perfection of forms and beauty I see in people she draws so perfectly.

In the first part of our conversation, the artist discusses the techniques of colored pencil drawing including art supplies. The second part of the interview is all about Tanja’s motivation, inspiration and story-telling. She also shares how she lived in and left Bosnia for the US. Enjoy!
