Tarien Bruwer
b.1991, South Africa


Tarien Bruwer is a Cape Town-based abstract artist and designer who works intuitively, relying on her instincts to guide visual explorations of pattern and colour. Her aesthetic is rooted in her multidisciplinary background and showcases a bold and graphic style, which motivates the artist to embrace the endless possibilities of weaving techniques.

Bruwer draws inspiration from the women who came before her and the writings of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Her love of threads, yarns and textiles – passed down from her mother, grandmother and great grandmother – makes her artworks irrevocably autobiographical.
