Reactor-88 Custom Corner: Tasha Zimich

Group_Levels_1

Welcome to the June edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting Tasha Zimich. Tasha lives in Vancouver, Canada, where she is the Operations Coordinator for d’Errico Studios Ltd, an ABA Therapist, and a painter & toy artist. She has an academic background in contemporary art, though producing art has been a part of her life since her childhood. She became aware of the art toy scene in 2009, and painted her first toy in 2011. Tasha felt she needed an in-between that balanced her critical theory in academics and her personal passion from early years of drawing and painting- custom toys became the vehicle to drive that.

Tasha does all her painting by hand with acrylics & brushes, and has a very colorful, “painterly” style that really draws your eye in to examine each piece more closely. When it comes to inspiration, she never really outgrew comics and cartoons, and is fascinated by horror books/film and the natural world. Bits and pieces from these different areas tend to come together in disturbing and adorable ways in Tasha’s work.

She does take commissioned projects, so if you’d like to discuss a project or just keep up with Tasha’s work, you can visit her website at www.tashazimich.com, or find her over on Facebook and Instagram.
