Tania L. Balan-Gaubert

b. 1986

Tania Laure is a mixed media artist whose interdisciplinary practice explores transnational identity and navigates the relationships between home and homeland, erasure and visibility, immigration, displacement, and history.  Through painting, photography, assemblage, and installation, Tania draws from her Haitian American heritage to contemplate long-distance nationalism and belonging in the face of physical and psychic separation.

Tania has a background in African American Studies and received her master’s from Columbia University in the City of New York. She is currently pursuing her master's in Fine Arts at California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
