Bio
Born in 1995, and raised in Plymouth (UK), Tanoa Sasraku's practice shifts between sculpture, drawing and filmmaking. Her stitched and torn newsprint works frequently harness earth pigments and garment making processes to express ideas relating to the British landscape, the human body and the artist’s familial legacy. In her practice as a filmmaker, Sasraku engages in retellings of traditional folklore via the medium of analogue film. 

Tanoa Sasraku is based in London (UK) and is currently enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools.
