Biography

Fatima Tayob Moosa (b.1983, South Africa) is a multi-disciplinary, process-based artist who works mainly in 2D media, including painting, drawing, photography, print and video art. Her work is strongly inspired by the relationship between diversity and oneness seen in aspects of personal versus cultural identity, which she explores through mark making and the discovery of various versions of abstraction. In 2018 she completed a BA Hons at The University of Hertfordshire, UK through the Interactive Design Institute. Her major subjects are painting and digital media, under the tutorship of Paul Taylor and Samantha Clark. As a second year student at the Greenside Design Centre, Johannesburg, her design for a contemporary, ergonomic cardboard chair was selected as a winning design and showcased at the 2007 Decorex Design Show. In 2019 she took part in the RMB Talent Unlocked program with Assemblage and VANSA, and her work was shown at RMB Turbine Art Fair. In 2019 she was invited by the South African Foundation of Contemporary Art to take part in a 6 week residency in Knyna on Entabeni Farm, South Africa. Fatima is a full time practicing artist with a studio based in August House, Johannesburg, South Africa.
