Tan Shao Qi graduated under the International Baccalaureate Career-Related Programme (IBCP) in Visual Arts at the School of the Arts, Singapore (SOTA). She is currently pursuing her BA (Hons) in Ceramic Design at Central Saint Martins (CSM), University of the Arts London.
Her experimentations with clay and mediums connected to documenting such as paper and photography evoke how the fragments of local flora she captures are poignantly transient, vulnerable to being unseen and lost at any moment — and must thus be recorded into permanence.
She is the youngest featured artist in KOHLER Bold. Art. Multiculturalism and Vivid and Veiled at Gajah Gallery. For her artistic and community involvement, she received the David Marshall Scholarship for Young Artist as well as the SOTA Excellence Arts Award in Visual Arts and Ceramics.
