LiQin Tan / 谭力勤
Tan has portrayed his inventive and autodidactic energy as an artist, educator and researcher for four decades while teaching in China, Canada, Singapore, and the U.S.A.
Since transferring to the field of digital art, he has pioneered the "Digital-Primitive” concepts, which have won great acclaim and a number of awards from both American and international art scenes. American media called him as a “Revolutionary Artist,” and his artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally in both solo and group shows.
In recent years, his research has focus on “Singularity Art” which explores how such technological singularity would impact on the future art. His publications include a number of articles and six books，such as “Singularity Art,” “Singularity: Subversive BioArt” and “Tan On Art/Art On Tan” etc..
He is a professor of art at Rutgers University，and has served as a core board member of the Digital Art Committee, a juror for the digital art gallery and the chairperson for Space-Time animation competition at SIGGRAPH. He was also one of the key activists during the ’85 art trend of China. In addition, he has previously worked as an art director, animator, graphic designer, and executive art editor at local and worldwide industries.
