Tanya Meditzky is an artist and writer based in West Yorkshire. Endlessly curious, her art practice is varied, exploring relationships between people – how we connect, the stories we tell each other and the environments created by these ideas.

With a BA in Interactive Arts & MA in Art as Environment from Manchester Metropolitan University, Tanya brings a creative outlook, imagination & a love of problem-solving to working in different fields and disciplines. She is interested in learning, collaboration & bringing people together.

Past interactive installations include Yellow Box, shown at Oldham Art Gallery & as part of Visionfest in Liverpool, Stroke, shortlisted by the Wellcome Trust’s Sci-Art initiative, and People and Props, an installation with a toolbox of over 100 plywood objects for visitors to create their own narratives & tableaux.

Other past exhibitions include Glow, a light festival across Newcastle & Gateshead, which saw her illustration work projected in The Sage, and the take-over of Lambs Conduit Street in Holborn, London, which she organised and curated to highlight the work of 14 comics artists & independent shops.  

Recent work includes Surface Equations, experiments with trigonometry, resulting in artworks that were exhibited in St Bartholomew’s Church as a backdrop to Marsden Jazz Festival’s 30th year in 2022.
