Born and raised in Chengdu, China. Illustrator and model.
Currently based in Chengdu, China.
Icy Tan has been drawing since she was 3 years old, but never attended academic art school. Instead, she taught herself to draw and create via a child-like wonder and exploration of everyday life.
With curious eyes set on observing the people and world around her and her love for the diversity of cultures, Icy started the People Watching project in 2015 when she was living in Guangzhou, China. Later she moved to Chile in South America and took this project to various places during her travel across different continents. She has exhibited her artwork in Chile and China.
In 2017, Icy participated in and led art therapy projects in Chile to work with homeless people and criminals to rebuild their self-esteem through art. She hopes everyone can experience more self-reflection, freedom, and open-minded spirit through art. She believes that the art everyone can create is your own self and your life.
