The youthful, innovative spirit of the founders of the Lingnan School has inspired James Tan to extend his own work well beyond tradition. He blends mastery of Chinese brush painting with an ability to capture the essence of Western culture, thereby creating a style of Chinese brush painting which is distinctly his own.
Tan graduated from the Singapore Academy of Art in 1972 and continued his studies with Chinese brush painting masters in Singapore, Taiwan and San Francisco until 1980 establishing himself as a master of the traditional and Lingnan schools of Chinese brush painting with his own distinctive style. He has taught and lectured extensively world-wide, including The National Museum Art Gallery (Singapore), The Victoria and Albert Museum in London. And annual lecture & demonstration at the arts in Action Festival in London, U.K.
Mr. Tan has won an extensive list of awards and honors and has exhibited extensively. 38 one-man shows in Singapore, Japan, Thailand, Dubai, Bahrain, Australia, England, Germany, the U.S.A. and Canada.
James' recent works retain the same exquisite quality that has made his name synonymous with creativity and true excellence around the world. His works are represented in international private and corporate collections. World-wide. Several books have been published featuring his and his student’s works.
He is the 1st Vice chair and Board Secretary of Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver, President of the Chinese Canadian Artists Federation in Vancouver (2007-2011) . Director of Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver (2007-2013), Museum curator of Chinese Cultural Centre Museum and Member of The City of Vancouver Chinatown Historic  Area Planning Committee 2010-2011.
