About the Art
Tahnee Lonsdale's work captures what the artist sees in her day to day life. Her paintings represent a reflection of how she views the world. In A Forest Appeared on My Street, the artist paints a reflection of a dream where nothing is how it should be.Color and storytelling play a significant role in her work, and text is faintly visible in the details of this painting, which draws the viewer forward.
Medeia Cohan-Petrolino said:
"Tahnee's works are visually pleasing, but hard to place. It could be the bright colour pallet, the playful tone, or the retro feel, but whatever it is, it works. Her artwork is challenging, contemporary and has wonderful detail."
Adriana Marques said:
"Tahnee creates fresh and daring paintings. Her work takes a small step from the abstract to the figurative. Quite beautiful and intimate works."

Tahnee Lonsdale sees the world in her own, odd way. And you can't help but be drawn into her vibrant universe. Naive characters act out bizarre situations in her abstract and contemporary paintings, notable for their bold blocks of colour. Wondering what it all means? Tahnee leaves clues on her work in barely visible charcoal text.
A show at the Redchurch Street Gallery caught the eye of Saatchi Art's Rebecca Wilson in 2012. She selected Tahnee in a list of 12 artists to invest in now, and tipped her as one of "tomorrow's Damien Hirsts". Her work has since been shown at The Saatchi Gallery and Somerset House, and been featured in the New York Times, Sunday Telegraph and Financial Times. This is an artist on the rise. So we're really pleased to offer the chance to buy her bright, characterful paintings.
Lonsdale has collaboration with women's sportswear brand Lucas Hugh, and produced a line of luxury scarves for Matches. Her work is included in collections in Singpore, Brazil, Taiwan and the US.
She trained at Byam Shaw School of Art, and lives and works in London.
