Tanya Ling Studio


Tanya Ling, NYC 2023


Tanya Ling (b. 1966, Calcutta, India) graduated from Central Saint Martins, London, in 1989. Post graduation, she worked as a designer in the Parisian fashion industry before returning to London in the early Nineties to set up a gallery, Bipasha Ghosh, with her husband William Ling. Following an exhibition of her own drawings, hosted in the studio of Gavin Turk in 1996, she became recognised as one of the world’s leading fashion illustrators. During the period she also designed and produced an eponymous ready-to-wear collection. The exhibition Lines (2014) with Alex Eagle marked her departure from fashion.

Most recently, her paintings have been exhibited with Harper’s, New York (2023). She has also exhibited with Harper’s in LA (2022) and East Hampton (2021). Other solo shows of note include Paul Stolper (2018/19) and The Mayor Gallery (2018). In 2011 over 50 of Ling’s works were acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum Prints and Drawings Collection and in 2014 a collection of paintings and sculptures were acquired by Damien Hirst for his collection from which works by Ling were included in exhibitions Simulation/Skin (2017) and Reason Gives on Answers (2019) both at Newport Street Gallery, London.

She lives and works in London.
