Ren Zi

About the artist
Ren Zi’s first public showcase in 2013 was funded through a Kickstarter campaign. More recently, in late 2015, his works were simultaneously presented in a solo at Charles B Wang Center, Stonybrook University, another solo in Singapore + a 2-person exhibition at OCBC Artspace. An autodidact, he has been awarded several grants from Singapore’s National Arts Council + Singapore International Foundation. He was a participant of the International Artist Residency at NARS Foundation in Brooklyn, New York. His works + shows have been mentioned/featured in traditional + online media, including the AsiaArt Pacific 2016 Almanac.

Ren Zi’s work explores the inner universe within each of us through the lens of mythology and themes of ceed, nation, homeland,home, tribe, family, motherfather and selfness. The scenery in his works represent the psychic landscapes (or as the artist prefers, psi-scapes) each telling a profound story of the human journey.
