Brendan Lee Satish Tang

BRENDAN LEE SATISH TANG was born in Dublin, Ireland of Trinidadian parents, and is a naturalized citizen of Canada. Tang has exhibited in juried and invitational shows in Canada and the U.S., including at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Ottawa Art Gallery, and the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft. His professional practice has taken him to India, Japan and Trinidad, and he has lectured at conferences and academic institutions across Canada. Tang’s work has been featured in printed publications such as Hi-Fructose and FUSE, and prominent blogs like Boing Boing and now, Accidental Mysteries.

His amazing ceramics borrows from ancient Chinese Ming dynasty vessels, techno-Pop Art, robotic mechanization, Japanese anime, and Manga (the beloved comics and picture novels of Japan). What Brendan is doing right now in contemporary ceramics is unique and important. If you collect or curate contemporary art—remember this name: Brendan Lee Satish Tang.

His education includes the Master of Fine Arts degree from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Brendan currently resides in Kamloops, British Columbia.

Truly fascinating. Reminds me of Rebecca Ridsdel:

What do you think of all of this experimentation with ceramics?? I've seen other artists doing great, weird work with it as well.

(Her work inspired a poem of mine in December):

Do you have any posts of the Artist Trading Card movement?

Loved seeing Brendan's work featured. He and I were at SIUE working on MFAs at the same time. His thesis show was phenomenal at Mad Art Gallery.
