Tania Kovats (artist)
Tania Kovats is Director of the MA Drawing course at Wimbledon College of Arts. She studied at Newcastle and at the Royal College of Art. She gained some notoriety with her early work Virgin in a Condom but is now concerned with nature, landscape and drawing. She was visiting Fellow at the School of Archaeology, Oxford University in 2006 and is joint author of The Drawing Book: A Survey of Drawing: the primary means of expression (2005). She will speak about drawing as a practicing artist, linking her comments on the cross-disciplinary nature of drawing to the Lines of Thought exhibition.
