TIFA Working Studios is seeking submissions for muralists and painters to exhibit a mural on the rear facade of its 1940s Art Deco-style building.

  • We strongly believe that creativity pushes culture, hence, consistently catalyzes cross-pollination between varied creative practices, pedagogy, and professional explorations. Moreover, our vision of creativity is not centered exclusively on art-based practices. We believe creativity to exist in practices across multiple sectors such as science, technology, economics, history, etc. as well.
    Being located in the marked center of the city, it offers a pulsating urban landscape allowing for strong connections with the community. The mural will be located in a highly visible location at the bustling center and will serve as the backdrop to many community-based arts and culture activities.
    Artists are invited to submit a design along with a description of the proposed mural and a work sample showing the artists’ style.
    TIFA encourages all locally and nationally qualified artists and artists’ teams to apply. This is an unencumbered call open to all qualified artists. The public art design will beautify, activate and enliven not only the building but also the surrounding areas.

We are seeking proposals which:

Explore the heritage themes whilst being visually contemporary in line with our aspiration to create vibrant public space.

Demonstrate the artist/collectives’ experience in delivering large-scale commissions and producing high-quality outcomes with cultural and artistic credibility
