Tessar Lo creates dynamic mixed media paintings where contemporary, historic, and imaginative cultural and aesthetic influences converge. Lo’s artistic works and practice emphasizes the importance of the authentic processes of discovery, expression, and transformation. Blending themes endemic to his Asian heritage with Western pursuits or direct expression and materiality, he uses acute marking, colour, and texture to draw the viewing inward and create an awareness of surface and story. Lo has exhibited internationally at Jaski Art Gallery, Amsterdam, Netherlands; Door Studios, Paris, France; Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles, USA; Atticus Gallery, Barcelona, Spain; and in Hong Kong, China. His artworks have been featured in Toronto at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Cooper Cole Gallery, Drake Hotel, and Project Gallery.
