Pixie Tan is a multidisciplinary art director and educator from Singapore. Informed by her background in experience design, moving images and graphic design, she helps brands and collaborators communicate ideas succinctly through visuals, words and space - and best through a combination of them all.

The breadth of her work of her work encourages her to take a collaborative approach towards a practice centred on the conditions of labour. Drawn to the human body and its gestures—the embodied possibilities of expression—in her work, she is interested in evoking an bodily presence that is greater than the sum of its parts.
