Long form Bio
Born and raised in San Francisco, Tanya Vlach is a transdisciplinary artist and storyteller. The founder of Colibrita productions and Eye,Tanya.
Passionate about transformative arts, process, movement, found objects, collage making, repurposing, recontextualizing, and channeling intuitively (from mundane to the spectacle)... Tanya creates as protopian meditation to spark creative interventions in her home, and in the virtual sphere to connect with souls all over the world. Harnessing and experimenting with new technologies as an extension of self, to weave stories for transformative collective experiences.
Inspired by a near-death car accident and the loss of her eye; her auto-science fiction transmedia project and novel, Alturas explores what it means to be alive, how to recreate self, by helping others is the path to individual and collective freedom.
Being neurodivergent, Tanya has discovered that her life is an ever-unfolding journey of recovery and release. She is in R&D developing a practice prototype of a trauma-informed safe space to facilitate inclusive art recovery cohorts for non-binary women, and women identifying to reclaim their inner voices that have fallen silent through trauma, oppression, poverty, displacement, addiction, and other violent means that have dimmed their agency. Through embodied mindfulness practices and other creative and regenerating exercises, each cohort as a goal will be able to imagine and visualize future selves living in a future sustainable regenerating community. Tanya believes imagination has the ability to heal. This new project is called the Uncovery, please stay tuned.
Tanya has been featured in the SF Chronicle, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, WIRED UK, ITALY, etc.
Tanya is very thrilled to be collaborating on Blockchain Fairy Tales and be a member of the mindblowing Digital Storytelling Lab. She is also a member of IAFS free school and collective, the Bioart Coven, and the Existential Hope group at the Foresight Institute.
Digitally motivated, she finds balance in creating with her hands, collaging, drawing, dancing, playing with her dog, and riffing with her friends.
Soon she is will be driving cross country to track down cryptids and other magical folk tales in the vastness of the United States.
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
