Biography

Wei Tan (b.1991, Malaysia) is an experimental musician turned abstract artist. Her works explore the idea of self-revelation through improvisation in her fiercely honest and biographical mixed-media paintings. She throws raw ingredients onto the canvas and brutally stirs them into a soup, until the nature of habit reveals itself as an accidental source of structure. Wei lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
