Tara Dinic, is a Serbian British artist, entrepreneur and financier, who has worked in an engineering firm for four years.
Born in 1991, she spent much of her childhood between Saudi Arabia, Greece, the UK and Serbia. Exposed to vivid colours, landscape and history throughout her childhood, Tara was inspired by Ancient Greek and Byzantine mosaics, particularly their craftsmanship and detail, not visible upon first glance.
Tara obtained a BSc in Finance and Investment Banking before completing an MSc in International Marketing at King’s College, London. At King’s College she took courses in digital marketing and consumer behaviour which triggered her interest in the art world, how people reacted to art and the marketing of it.
Between 2013-2017, she worked for a large US construction and civil engineering company at their London offices. During her time working in the corporate world, she began painting. What started as a meditative hobby became a full-fledged pastime and a form of escapism.
In 2015, she completed a course in Art as an Investment at the Sotheby's Institute in London in order to further deepen her understanding of the workings of the art market.
Tara mainly works with acrylic paint on canvas, often painting provocative political pieces, as well inspirations from her travels.
Her paintings currently consist of six series; Hearts, Crosses, Man & Woman, Dots, Continuity, A Touch of Arabia and A World Away.
