Fanny Tang was born on a beautiful small island, Republic of Nauru, a Central Pacific Island near Australia. She was influenced from her father who used to study art in France and she wanted to finish his wish as an artist. She holds a BFA in oil painting from University of Calgary in Canada. Back and worked in Hong Kong after undergraduate. In 2013 she finished her MFA in Fresco Department from Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China. Now She lives and work in Canada. In 2018, Tang has had a successful showing at ART!Vancouver 2018, Canada. Currently her work ‘Recycle White Coral’ is exhibiting in Arts 2018 juried arts show in Surrey Art Gallery. Tang has held solo and group exhibitions in Beijing, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Canada. Fanny combined the western style and Chinese way of “Xieyi”- freehand style which spontaneously follow the flow of colors. She was inspired by the Dun Huang grotto art in ancient China by using mineral stone pigment as her main painting material. The shininess and rough texture represent the coral reef under the sea. They are colorfully and calmly shining in their own life. She spent years drifting around and moved more than 20 times. she think she is just like a jellyfish swimming in the ocean. She often ask myself, "Who am I?" "Where is my home?" Freely flowing of colors with no direction and plan but just follow the flow and wondering. Recent works are a continuation of my Master graduation theme of an underwater dream. She is fascinated by the beauty of coral reefs. Her artworks are always colorful to cheer up my life. She is attracted by the flash beauty of Mineral pigment colors just like the beauty of corals. However, because of the continuous indirect and direct destruction of the marine ecology by human, beautiful corals are quickly facing extinction. Using different mediums and recycle materials remind us to reverse the decline of survival of corals. Her goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, Be more aware of these beautiful and vitally ecosystems and the people are depending on them that are too important to lose.
