Tantra's bold interventions use colour abstractions that wrap themselves around architectural environments, transforming them in the process. The works are a hybridity of pop and formalism, a bricolage of colour and rhythm, an exploration of identity and aesthetics. She describes the work as ‘painting on an architectural scale', creating works that celebrate the spectacle, questioning the decorative, functional and social role of art.
