Tya Alisa Anthony (°1978, Colorado Springs, United States)
Tya Alisa Anthony explores themes of Identity seeped in Ecology, Ritual, Time and Space. While Anthony’s research driven practice is an investigation of Rituals interspersed into our daily lives, fact with a little fiction, her practice observes, reimagines and preserves inclusive spaces for people of color through photography, collage and reliquary.
Anthony received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, (SUMMA CUM LAUDE) honored as Valedictorian, from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. Presently, Anthony lives and works in the city of Denver, producing performance, photography + installations.
