Taz Witkamp

Taz Witkamp is a young, emerging Australian artist on the South Coast of NSW. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at COFA (UNSW Art and Design) in 2015. 

Born into a family of oil painters, at the historic family studio “Hy-Brasil” in Avalon on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Taz Witkamp has observed the three generations of oil painters (Nada Herman, Edward Herman and Sali Herman) and absorbed the knowledge and discipline to create her chapter of the Hy-Brasil story. 

Taz followed her passion for Australian landscape and moved to the South Coast of NSW. Her passion for Australian landscape and flora has inspired her practice. Her most recent body of work reflects the pyrophitic nature and resilience of the bushland after a destructive summer of bushfires. She is excited to be evolving as an artist, and is passionately experimental in her studio.

Taz had a sell out exhibition “Corridors” in February 2023 at Gallery Alchemy.
