FLASH! SHERWIN TAN



SHERWIN TAN is noted for his distinctive work. They present a surreal, minimalist look of small figures done in gray set against an all-white backdrop. Another distinguishing mark is a red ball, which Tan describes as the rising sun. Tan explains that the rising sun offers a symbol of hope. Every painting he does features this red symbol. Thus, no matter what the subject of a particular painting is, the sun is always there to offer some measure of hope.

As a painter for more than eleven years, Sherwin Tan employs oriental calligraphic strokes with a touch of the old way of writing to a modern way of painting. His modern and figurative abstraction paintings exhibit black and white colors and textured layers created by various techniques; each layer of paint is applied with purpose, building upon soft washes and energetic brush strokes. Whereby acrylic is the favorite painting medium, Tan also uses canvases, paper, ostrich eggs, toilet paper, tile, ceramics and dramatically narrow, horizontal surfaces as well. Sherwin Tan graduated at the University of San Carlos Cebu City with a Bachelor of Fine Art Major in Advertising.
