ABOUT THE ARTIST
Dennis Tan (b. 1975, Singapore) graduated with a Diploma in Painting, Bachelor in Environmental Design, and a Master in Architecture. Describing his approach in his practice of boat building as ‘building-without-a-plan’, Tan’s practice grounds itself in the sensibilities of the common man – engaging the subject with naïve curiosity. He has exhibited in Singapore, Australia, and Korea. He is the founder of HAROU, the atelier for his ongoing artistic and architectural endeavours.
