Terence Tan

Bio/CV

Born in Singapore in 1970.  Graduated from Singapore Polytechnic with a Diploma in Electronics Engineering in 1990.  A self-taught photographer, I got my first taste of digital photography with a camera I received from a X'mas gift exchange back in 2002.  As they say, the rest is history.  I have been a professional photographer since 2007.

 I was featured in Asian Photography magazine in 2011 Oct/Nov edition for "portfolio of the month" feature editorial.  I have also participated in fine art exhibitions (photo works) as follows:

* 2016 April, UNSUNG, @DegiosArt Gallery, first Solo Exhibition
* 2015 December, Singapore Our Garden of Eden @The Art Space, a group exhibition by Art Channel Gallery
* 2015 September, NINE Exhibition @The Art Space @Suntec City Mall, a group exhibition by Art Channel Gallery

 

Artist Statement

I am interested in capturing the beauty that exists in daily life, sifting through the humdrum of society's daily routine for the 'decisive' moment.  Making images that elevate its subject or context from the mundane to the extraordinary, thus imparting new life and significance to the subject.  I prefer to exhaust a subject that others might find ordinary or uninspiring, very often utilising layers and juxtaposing images to create beautifully composed artworks with a painterly eye.
