Biography / Artist statement

Tiah Algalarrondo, is a French Muslim revert, autistic, and ADHD textile artist. She attended fashion design school in France, where she initially focused on clothing and household linen. However, she later discovered the versatility of textiles, using them to create various visual artworks, blending mediums, beads, and embroidery. Passionate about salvaging and upcycling, Tiah transforms items to give them a second life, drawing inspiration from diverse cultures and merging old with new. Her journey with art began with the pandemic, becoming her sanctuary and aiding in managing anxiety and depression. Tiah is an advocate for mental health, using artistic self-expression, especially when words are hard to find.
