Born in 1951 - Australia

BIOGRAPHY

Wilma Tabacco was born in Italy and grew up in Australia. Today she lives and works in Australia.

Her work reflects the international character of the contemporary Australian art: multicultural and open to all influences.

In all her body of work, the artist seeks, first and foremost, to set free the deep structures of the subject matter, creating colorful patterns, characterized by both geometric rigor and poetic subtlety.
