Founder and director of Studio_Leigh

Tayah has a unique vision when it comes to pursing artists who create works that explore the space between use, value and art for art's sake.

London, GB


Tayah is a London based curator, founder and director of Studio_Leigh.

After gaining a first class degree from Central Saint Martins, Tayah Leigh Barrs immediately began working for Mario Testino as part of his creative team. She worked as art director and also headed a division that worked with the photographer on unique and special collaboration projects. In 2014 she resigned from Mario Testino to start her own gallery Studio_Leigh. Since opening in September 2015 the gallery has received much press and critical acclaim for its ambitious and original structure: for being an innovative and progressive gallery space, working with its artists in a unique way, allowing it access to both emerging and represented artists.
