Tania Costa

Artist member since 2020
Toronto, Ontario

Tania Costa is a Portuguese artist based in Toronto, working primarily with painting and drawing. Tania is focused on creating work that questions her relationship with her religion and her cultural heritage and how those ideologies have shaped her sense of self and belonging.

My work records moments of shame and guilt, driven by traditional Catholic and patriarchal thought processes, capturing the female figures in moments of vulnerability and solitude. With a slight emphasis on pattern repetition and minimal colour use, the work depicts the weight of tradition, identity, and emotion on the female form.
