Born and raised in Brisbane, Tamika Grant-Iramu’s printmaking practice focuses on minute areas of native flora from her immediate environment. From these observations through a strong print aesthetic, she creates a diverse range of organic patterns and forms. The physicality of carving linocut not only allows her to realise these artworks, it has also revealed a connection to her Torres Strait Islander heritage.
Tamika Grant-Iramu graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2017 at the Queensland College of Art, majoring in Interdisciplinary Print Media. She continues to build a body of work with a focus on Torres Strait Islander printmaking techniques and storytelling aesthetic. Tamika Grant-Iramu is eager to engage with Western and Non-Western print communities as a way to merge these two influential parts of her life.
