About Tati

About Tati Tung

Tati Tung.png

Tati Tung is a citizen of the world. Born Brazilian but of Chinese, Hungarian, and Portuguese origins, she now lives in the most multicultural country in the world.


She studied in all domains of science, living on a path that testifies her longing for truth and change, and love for diversity shown in her artwork. With Zen painting elements she creates colourful delicate watercolours engaging others to share their views of hope for the future. She sees art as a way of feeding the soul that is always so thirsty for knowledge and beauty.

Seeing the difficulties with mask use at the beginning of 2021, we asked people around the world to send us a “How to NOT wear a Mask” photo via social media to raise awareness in a comic, joyful way.


The original ideas were painted in watercolours and added to this incredible wall of nefarious possibilities.


The brilliance of the colours and the ridiculous approach to the theme give a lighter perspective to a sensitive subject. It is an invitation to play, so that everyone can find their own interesting way of showing their appreciation of the role of masks in the society of that time.


The masks are always painted blue, in reference to the blue clothes used in hospitals, the blue that is commonly present in most health establishments as a reminder of the effort of all to make our society healthier.


The cool hues of the masks combined with the warmer colours of the portraits create a unifying front, representing the idea that we are all part of the same community, with the same concerns, sharing similar goals of safety and care.


It is a work made with a worldwide effort for a worldwide community that is facing the same problems together.
