about

Tara Deacon is South African illustrator and painter whose work explores the naive and simple nature of everyday observations. Her curiosity to play with colors and how they work with one another in a composition express a cohesive flavor of optimism. Tara’s illustrations are brought to life in an array of bright and vibrant colors using gouache and an endless supply of unwashed paint palettes. She currently lives and works in Berlin where she works on editorial and commercial illustration projects in London, South Africa and Germany.
