Brendan Lee Satish Tang is a Canadian artist that creates really unique ceramic sculptures.
Born to Trinidadian parents in Ireland, Brendan Lee Satish Tang is a ceramic artist who now resides in kamploops, Canada. His series ‘manga ormolu’ is a commentary on globalization examined through the relationship between traditional Chinese Ming dynasty vessels and techno-pop art of Japan. Tang casts traditional vessels and adorns them with prosthetics inspired by Japanese anime and manga, subverting the elitism of the vessels ‘with the accessibility of popular culture.’ The concept of adapting the ming vessels is designed to recall 18th century french gilded ormolu, which borrowed chinese vessel forms to act as curiosity pieces for aristocrats.
Tang’s work has been showcased at several galleries all around the world.
