Tan Shen Ru

Born in Penang, Malaysia, Tan Shen Ru went to Graceland University USA and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree (BA), majoring in Art and minoring in Music. Finding painting therapeutic, she now immerses herself in it whenever her work schedule at RT&Q Architects allows her to do so. She regards her works as exercises in an ongoing art practice, referring to them as ‘experiential’ and ‘in the moment’ artworks.
 

Form, shape, texture, colour, line, and movement - elements of the visual world - have always fascinated her and of late she has explored them in her very own personal way, coming up with paintings that may be called, if you like, abstract contemporary. Shen Ru has also travelled widely and this she believes has contributed in many ways to her understanding of art and of herself as a person.
 

‘Colour in Motion’ is her first solo art exhibition.
