This is the first solo show of the Malaysian artist Kent Keong Tan in Istanbul. Tan’s paintings are inspired by his childhood memories, especially his experience of different cultures. For instance, Tan often combines the scenery in Taiwan with his childhood memories from Malaysia.

His paintings, which feature neglected corners, abandoned houses and deserted rooms, blend together memory and the reality of the present in surreal scenes. These abstract expressionist works also incorporate signs of Tan’s belief in Zen Buddhism.
