With an eye for observing the social dynamics around her, Tania Nelson uses Mixed-Media Collage and Street Photography as her commentary on issues of personal identity, consumer culture, politics, historical narratives and so many other current points of division and unity.
Tania’s work carries the influence of contemporary American artists, from American Abstract Expressionism to Pop Art, and photographers from the WPA documentary projects to current Street Photographers on Instagram.
Tania was born and raised in Wausau, Wisconsin. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay in 1999. She studied in the interdisciplinary Social Change and Development program, with an emphasis in American Social Issues. She is self-taught in the world of art and took it up as a profession after a nearly 20 year career in the banking industry.State
