Mark Tan obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Drawing and Applied Arts from the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol). Working through photography, drawing, and printmaking, his various configurations become sensory fragments that investigate the methodologies of mark-making. The psychological spaces of memory as a site of constant flux are then used as a trigger for Tan’s practice.
Tan has exhibited both locally and internationally in Singapore, Indonesia, France and the UK. His most recent exhibitions include Arrangements, OUR ArtProjects (2017); Bi Lateral Bonds, TAKSU Singapore & Malaysia (2016); TP II by Cetak Kolektif, HOM Art Trans, Malaysia (2015); 17e Biennale internationale de la gravure de Sarcelles, France (2015); Presence, The Gallery @ Starhill, Malaysia (2015); and Synecdoche, Embassy Tea Gallery, United Kingdom (2014).
