About the artist
Jamie Tan is interested in the relative nature of colour; in its ability to reflect our transient state of being. He sees our perception of colour as a collaborative effort — colour develops our identity as it influences the way we live, shifting our feelings from one state into another.

In his paintings, Tan explores colours in myriad tones, arranging them carefully yet sometimes arbitrarily to manipulate space. With his artworks, the artist aims to touch upon his audience’s inner senses, to help them gain a deeper experience of life’s depth and perspective through their interaction with colours.

Tan received his BA (First class honours) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, awarded by Goldsmith University of London, in 2017. Since graduation, Tan has participated in several solo and group exhibitions and regional art fairs in Malaysia and Singapore.
