Tyra Naidoo

Tyra Naidoo

Tyra Naidoo, born in 1995 in KwaZulu-Natal, has been based in Cape Town for 8 years now. She came to the Western Cape to study at Michaelis School of Fine Art at the University of Cape Town.

Since graduating with her honors she's worked as a transdisciplinary arts practitioner over various local galleries; as a mentor for global artist residency programs and as an independant curator.

Naidoo is a member of the collaborating artist group, the Kutti Collective. Within her own practice she has exhibited with assorted spaces, from commercial galleries and art fairs to NPO projects.

Materiality plays a central role in her work as she uses it as a thematic tool in navigating psychological and emotional responses to intimate socio-political experiences - predominately that of diasporic culture and relationships to pre-conceived delineations of identity. A commonality in her oeuvre is the juxtaposition of fragility and aggression, creating a nuanced exploration that presents almost neutral and balanced.
