Interview with Sinta Tantra by Tim Barnes

Tim Barnes, Saturation Point

“The nature of public art blurs the boundaries between the disciplines of art, design and architecture. How does our perception of art change when it is presented in an urban environment? How does a wall painted by an artist differ to one that is whitewashed? These are not gallery walls, these are walls that are passed by hundreds of people every day, who might not look twice at them. Injecting artwork in these spaces is not necessarily about injecting an ‘exoticism’ or an idealism. It’s about making people conscious of their shared urban environments, using colour to change spatial perception, questioning the spaces in which they live.”
