Biography

 

Born in Afghanistan, Tamana S.H. Djuya spent most of her formative years in Germany until 2003 when she moved to Vancouver, Canada.

 

Through a variety of forms including painting, sculpture and installation, she explores issues related to the human condition, specially the struggle and challenge with the inner self, sociopolitical cross-cultural dialog and the environment. 

 

Her work has been exhibited and collected since 2014 and found their way into the hands of private collectors in Canada, USA and Europe. She currently lives and works from Vancouver, Canada.
