Tai Snaith

Tai Snaith is an artist, author and broadcaster living and working on unceded Wurundjeri land.

Her multi-disciplinary work celebrates the intersection of stories, collections, people and place. She is interested in how objects like books, vessels and other utilitarian items can be powerful tools to illustrate the times we live in as well as the past. How, like literature, objects can convey a deep emotional point of view and energy. Tai also has a longstanding love of animals and interest in biodiversity. She has 6 published books with Thames and Hudson, which all use animals as a way for children to connect with ideas of place, self, mindfulness and environmental action.

Tai has artwork held in both private and public collections including Artbank, City of Banyule, NGA and State Library of Victoria as well as recently commissioned series for Andaz Prague and a current public sculpture commission for the Great Victorian Rail Trail. Tai has an ongoing podcast of conversations called ‘A World of One’s Own’ originally commissioned by ACCA, which is now in its third season.

In 2020, Marikit won the prestigious Sir John Sulman Prize for her work ‘The divine’, which examines the concepts and principles surrounding faith, creation stories, motherhood, cultural heritage and gender roles. Marikit was also a two-time finalist for the Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, a 2019 Sulman Prize finalist, and was shortlisted for Create NSW’s 2018 Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship.
