Local Artist Profile: Tesse Terrell

Oct 15, 2017 | Designer Profile

Our amazingly talented friend, local artist, Tesse Terrell, debuts her first solo exhibition ‘Death Collection’ this Saturday 21st October at Maverick Hair and Art Space in Coolangatta.

Inspired by her lifelong passion for Mexican culture and arts, Terrell draws inspiration from the Mexican Dia de Muertos, commonly known as Day of the Dead, and presents a curated line-up of artists that passed away during 2016 and 2017.

A passionate painter, Terrell’s first solo exhibition expands on her signature style, a combination of painted timber and mixed media, finished in a 3D setting. Each artist is completed in infinite detail and depth, credit to Terrell’s fine style and attention to detail.

Leonard Cohen, Prince and David Bowie are part of the 20-piece collection that celebrates these iconic artists. Terrell’s portrayal of each artist is authentic, light-hearted and voices true respect to the talent they were and represents the impression they’ve made on her as an artist.


Tesse Terrell’s Death Collection exhibition runs from 21st October to November 4th.

Each original piece will be available for purchase and we suggested you get along to the event to check out her work.
