Tasha Alakoz is a visual artist, photographer and art director from Liepaya, Latvia. Her signature style consists of self-portraits that are exploding with the funkiest of colors.
When scrolling down her Instagram and curating this feature my selection got bigger and bigger. I literally spent hours adding even more pictures because I just wouldn’t know where to stop.
Tasha started out photographing at the early age of thirteen. Now age 24, she calls herself a “poet of immortal soul and wild heart”, “a photo and video maker”. I call her a visual poet who excels with an amazing taste in image composition. Her body of work is incredibly aesthetic, and creative. Her works are created and produced all by herself, mostly by use of a self-timer.
When reaching out to Tasha for a feature it struck me again how the artist behind the art can be totally different than what you would expect. Tasha came across rather shy, very much in contrast to the outgoing and omni-present Tasha that we see in her self-portraits.
Tasha currently lives in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Follow Tasha Alakoz on Instagram to subscribe to her funky vibe.
