Rexy Tseng (1986) is a visual artist who works primarily in painting and installation. His art practice derives from the dark humor and unrequited desires found within contemporary living conditions. He often plays on the intimate relationships of subjects. This could be the relations of brothers, lovers, neighbors, enemies, or friends. Tseng uses pairing to fundamentally question love, lust, empathy, animosity, acceptance, reconciliation, grief, and other nuanced emotions.
Born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan until the age of thirteen, Rexy Tseng relocated to the United States to further his education. Tseng graduated with a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in 2009. From 2010 to 2012, he attended UCLA's MFA program but left to work full-time. In Fall 2017, Tseng left the workspace for the University of Oxford, where he enrolled as a MFA student at the Ruskin School of Art. He dropped out of the program after only one month to practice as a professional artist. Rexy Tseng extends his creative practice internationally, having had multiple exhibitions in China, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Russia, Taiwan, and the U.S..
