b. 1960, lives and works in Manila

Gerardo Tan took his BFA degree in Painting at the University of the Philippines in Diliman and his MFA degree in Painting at the State University of New York at Buffalo on a Fullbright Fellowship grant.  A multimedia artist, he works with objects and photo-based installations, artist books, collages and mixed media paintings. His recent collage-based paintings fuse digital prints and paint, probing postmodern concepts of originality and individual style.  He has participated in many local and international exhibitions among which are the 1st Melbourne Biennale (1999) and the 2nd Asian Art Show in Fukuoka Museum (1982).  He is also a recipient of the CCP Thirteen Artists Award in 1988.
