Featured Artist: March to April 2019
The culture, passion, importance, and richness of Mexican traditions make it easy to get inspired and creative, and to portray strong ideas.
The ingenuity and authenticity of Mexico was one of the most important things to consider when I was thinking of creating this body of work. The respect and admiration for Mexican culture and the importance to acknowledge it as the unity of strong beliefs are the inspirations for representing my roots.
The many ways to represent my favourite themes, colours, careful design, creativity, and our culture are some of the best tools that I work with when it comes to delivering my ideas and point of view on a white canvas.
Dulce Tapp was born in Mexico City and moved to Canada in 1991.
She got a degree in Architecture from the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
Dulce now works from her studio in Ottawa.
Mixed media and collage pieces best represent her art, displaying the images with a particular spice for design and colour.
Her unique pieces have very vibrant backgrounds consisting of multiple layers of paper and paint.
Representing urban living is a common trend in her art.
She has followed her heart and her creativity with the right attitude and persistence.
