About the Artist

Tanja Bos has lived in Washington, DC since 1989, but is originally from the Netherlands. She received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design and has an MFA from the University of the Arts. Tanja was surrounded by art when growing up in Europe, influenced by her mother who is a painter and sculptor and still resides in the Netherlands. She grew up watching her mother work in her studio. She has recently shown her works in Ward Ellinger Gallery in Rehoboth, DE, as well as Gallery Plan b and Ground Floor Gallery in Washington, DC. Her mediums are mainly oil paint, sometimes using ink or paper on small and large scale canvases.

“I strive to achieve a mood in my paintings, a captured moment, and play between abstraction and a more defined visual. I use an intensely rich and dramatic color palette to evoke the dreamlike qualities that will draw in the viewer to seek their own relationship”
