Tara Zanzig (b. 1975) received her BFA in 2001 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has produced print based work in various Chicago studios, including Screwball Press, Spudnik Press, and Fugscreens. Currently, she operates independently as Tararchy Screenprinting, creating original works of art and t-shirt printing.
As part of her art practice, Tara has produced many public works; from unsanctioned street pieces to commissioned murals. She has exhibited across the US. Her work has appeared in the Rockford Art Museum, The Newberry Library in Chicago, the Wabash Arts Corridor and is in numerous private collections. Working primarily in non-traditional mixed screenprint media, Tara’s aesthetic is characterized by an unrefined, analog style. She seeks meaning in a commercially driven society through portraiture.
