Wenlin Tan is an interdisciplinary artist from Singapore who works with painting, sculpture, photography & performance.

Behind every object, place, or moment lies a connection. Her work is the medium fostering these connections, inviting viewers to engage and observe, to think and feel. Her projects are focused on exploring relationships, and take inspiration from facets of the human condition, nature and our daily interactions.

As an illustrator & writer, she was a finalist for PLACES, an illustration & travel writing mentorship program. Her short story ‘The giant & the bird’ & accompanying illustrations have been published by Epigram books Singapore in an anthology. Her illustrated short story ‘The droplet’ was showcased at Singapore Art book fair & the original painting will be exhibited at House of Vans, London as part of Blue dot Generation.
