YVETTE TANG
she/her

Interdisciplinary Artist

I studied print making at Emily Carr, drawing will be my go to for beginning of any ideas, I picked up photography a few years before covid and it's been wonderful to realized ideas in a surrealistic way and also meet amazing artists, working as a team. Studied fashion photography at New York Film Academy  and workshopped with Formento x Formento in Paris.  Artist residency in Rhone Valley , France. Now I am beginning to work on pottery. If I am to describe myself as an artist , I am a surrealist, there's often a narrative with the work, to deliver and emote a certain contradicting situation or emotions, to create a pleasurable cringe of some sort. Often strong emotions. I am often investigative with the very truth of human or nature behaviors, I do believe the roots of all things are deeply emotional and it fascinates me. An uncontrollable controlled situation, like the world.
