Tailor Winston is an emerging interdisciplinary South Australian artist. Born on Kaurna Land to African/American and Italian parents, Tailor explores the experiences of the human condition through Afro-surrealism, from the perspective of a biracial woman. Using visual art, performance, and spoken word, she seeks to open conversations exploring decolonisation, environmentalism, and spiritual identity. Tailor invites her audience to journey within and engage with participatory elements of her works, exploring interconnectedness through a collective generosity
