Fiona Tan (born in 1984) is a multi-cultural, cross-disciplinary and visionary woman. Her origins are a mix of Chinese, German, Dutch and Brazilian. She lives and works in Monaco, her citizenship country. After graduating from Parsons the New School for Design New York in 2006, she focused her attention in broadening her knowledge in the fields of energy, healing and well-being.
Since she was a child, Fiona saw the world in unique ways. What was unseen for most was visible to her. Told she was too young to know such things, she stopped sharing her gifts and visions with others. What happened is by obstructing her means of communication she focused her attention into creativity. Art was a great escape, a silent way to be able to flourish through her talents. During her introspective journey, she learned to feel empowered with her unique abilities and channeled them in ways that would define her creations. Utilizing her acquired knowledge and divine inspiration she created : Artceuticals - Medicinal & Transformational Art. “ Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another ,” Albert Einstein. Fiona uses light and energy as a medium to reflect experiences which help induce shifts in the viewer and space. Her art is a tool to inspire Transformation.
Artceuticals are mixed media artworks using traditional techniques in conjunction with new technology. Her visualization helps bring different elements together to create a new reality. She mixes photography, digital art, drawing and painting linking the real world and the virtual world with the human hand. Fiona's methodology can be compared to an Impressionism 5.0, involving elements of Post-Expressionism, transcribing the world simultaneously from an emotional, mental, physical and energetic point of view. To crystallize her vision she mixes her east and west heritage and techniques. In every project, she brings to light the cycle of life, often represented by a process of decomposition and reconstruction. In doing so, she exposes the ephemeral nature of human existence.
Fiona’s artworks have been added to the Coral Spring Museum, Florida, USA. The artist, who in 2013 won the “ Futurum Award ” for her use of digital technology, became well known through numerous solo- and group shows in the United States, Canada, China, Germany, South Africa and the Arab Emirates. She created a project in the Palazzo Ca Zanardi during the Venice Biennial in 2015.
