About the photographer and visual artist
Jay Tang is a visual artist, freelance photographer and visual designer based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, or as he likes to call himself: a visual creature. He helps organisations and brands to visualise their ideas and to better visual communication efforts.
As a photographer, he graduated with the highest honours from the study Fotografisch Vormgeving (Photographic Design) at the Fotovakschool School (University of Applied Photography) in Amsterdam in 2015. In that same year he was awarded 2nd prize at the Keep an Eye Fotovakschool Grant 2015 for his project ‘Son, this is your home’ (working title).
As an artist, he draws his inspiration from his background as a second generation Hong Kong immigrant, born and raised in The Netherlands. The identity of mixed cultures has shaped him as a person and as an artist. His body of work in the ‘Everyday Landscapes’ serie – An abstract serie of landscape photographs created with everyday material, like paper, plastic bags and tissues – has been exhibited in metropolitan cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Chicago and Hong Kong. In 2020, he collaborates with Anita Neve Galerie, to produce his first solo exhibition.
