Howard Tan Open Studio
15 October 2022 - 16 October 2022
Howard Tan was born in Penang in 1974. Having tired of the work in the software industry after nearly 10 years, he switched to work in photography. He started off by selling his photographic prints in local art and craft markets, then opened his own gallery and shop.
He works and lives in Penang. He draws inspiration from the old buildings, the people, the streets, the wandering cats, the tradespeople and other aspects of the world around him. Howard also has an interest in collecting old Malaysian black & white photographs and books from the Flea markets. His latest works now involve turning these old prints and images into collages, and is a new narrative of his art and his subconscious impulses. These have been very well received and for the moment is his current and favourite mode of expression.
You can visit Howard and see him at work on Saturday and Sunday 10:30am -12:30pm. and 2:30-4:30pm.
