TARQ is delighted to announce that we will be hosting a mosaic workshop conducted by A&T Cunha at the gallery on Saturday, July 30th at 11am. For participants aged 16+, this workshop will teach you how to create your own glass mosaic using designs selected by Aashika and Tanishaa that you can take home with you. Snacks are included!
This workshop ties in with our current exhibition Event, Memory, Metaphor curated by Anish Gawande which explores the intricate intertwining of memory and history to ask fundamental questions about how — and why — we access the past through artworks by Areez Katki, Garima Gupta, Muzzumil Ruheel, Parag Tandel, Philippe Calia, Saju Kunhan, Sameer Kulavoor, and Saubiya Chasmawala.

About A&T Cunha Mosaic
Sisters Aashika & Tanishaa Cunha based in Mumbai chanced upon the art of mosaic purely for fun. They now create commissions for some of the most prominent families in India. They transform the craft of mosaic into unique artworks. They use vibrant hand-cut vitreous tiles, turning them around to add texture and vitality. Their prized work, amongst many national & international projects is a 252 sq ft mosaic mural at the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu, Hawaii and two portraits of Sheikh Zayed in Abu Dhabi in collaboration with Make A Wish Foundation; and most recently, an elephant 'Mara' which was done for Elephant Parade.
Currently, Aashika works at the Jehangir Nicholson Art Foundation at the CSMVS and has completed her Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts, from Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore in 2012. Tanishaa Cunha is the creative director at Plane Crazy Studios and has completed her Bachelor's degree in Design from Goldsmiths College, London in 2018.
