About the Artist
Ian Tee's practice explores youth culture, in relation to the genres of rebellion, vulnerability and identity. Working with mixed-media paintings on aluminium, his works conflate the history of painting with the vigour of subcultures. The attitude carried is a statement about power, defiance and possibility. He will present a new body of works where he explores the saying “kill your darlings”; a phrase which speaks about removing and suppressing indulgences for the sake of a larger story/ trajectory.
Ian Tee will be presenting his works at Yavuz Gallery. He is represented by Yavuz Gallery.
