Born in Jakarta, Indonesia and raised in Toronto, Canada- Tessar Lo approaches his work through the framework of play and chance. He seeks to create surface and non-linear narratives around the perceptions of time, parallel realities, recollection, and the ever-changing sense of identity.
Lo is also keen on language, the unplaceable, humour and the preposterous. He is excited by the transitions of world-building through his work and is intent to engage in myth and all possibilities of shift.
Since graduating with a BAA from Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Lo has had prolonged stints in Los Angeles and various parts of Indonesia. He has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Amsterdam.
He currently lives and works in Toronto.
