Tariqa Waters manages a multi-faceted practice as a visual artist, alternative gallerist, curator and educator. Waters was born in Richmond, Virginia. She taught herself to be a painter, learning from other artists in her family and a period of time working as a muralist in Sicily. She exhibited her paintings in group exhibitions in the Metro D.C. area and in Atlanta where she lived prior to moving to Seattle. In only four years in Seattle, Waters has made an indelible mark on the city’s arts community and the Pioneer Square neighborhood. The move to the neighborhood also shifted Waters’ practice as her life and work began to merge in unexpected ways. In 2013 Waters opened Martyr Sauce: A “renegade” gallery and platform for generating press and attention for marginalized perspectives.
