Ekram Tira

Ekram Tira was born in Tunisia in 1982 and holds a degree in Fine Arts, with a specialization in engraving, and a master’s degree in Sciences and Techniques of the Arts from the Higher Institute of Fine Arts of Tunis. She has been teaching art since 2007. Through her work Tira demonstrates an interest in popular images and muses about the so-called consumer society. Using images cut from brochures and catalogs, she imagines new compositions, in what can be termed anagrams of images, which result in new, hybrid forms that conjure an alternative world. Tira has participated twice in The Spring of the Arts exhibition and has exhibited at the Mille Feuilles Gallery in La Marsa.
