Casey Tan is a Singaporean painter whose works cantered on visual metaphor and narrative. Many of his artworks draw inspiration from song lyrics, movies, books and other genres of art, often finding connections between these sources of inspiration to the life experience. Sometimes bringing drama and fantasy to the ordinary.

Casey graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts in 2016, NAFA, where he was also a Ngee Ann Kongsi Scholarship recipient. Prior to NAFA, Casey studied Digital Animations at Institute of Technical Education (2011-2012), where he started painting during this period of time after being inspired by the works of old masters and occasionally the visual aesthetic of eastern and western animations. In his recent practice, he tries to avoid operating by intuition, instead taking time to understand and explore different ways of interpreting a particular scenario. He believes not all art have to be decorations, but one that can aspire to hold narrative.

In 2019, Casey was awarded the UOB Most Promising Artist of The Year, with his work, The Water Is Wide. Prior to the event, he has also received several recognitions for his artistic contributions during his time in National Service, some of which are part of their collection. Notably in 2017 when his painting was received by former president Dr Tony Tan.

Presently he lives and works in Singapore, where his artwork has been commissioned by Keppel, Temasek Holdings and other corporations. Besides receiving commissions, his artworks are also part of private collections and they were featured in several group exhibitions at Cuturi Gallery from 2020 – 2021.
