Needsfar Tan is an emerging Mixed Media Artist based in Dubai.
This self-taught Artist was born and raised in the Philippines. At a young age, he already discovered his passion in creating Arts and since then has progressively developed this talent.
Despite his love for Arts, he pursued to be an Engineer and has worked as one in UAE for the past 6 years.
His love for making the Arts has never died and was rekindled in 2015, which he started while still working as a full-time Engineer.
My work mainly inspired by the beauty that nature brings. The different diversity that is found in our environment; like the bodies of water, trees, rock formations, sea life and even fungi has motivated me to use their shapes and forms in my creations.
I like to use ancient form of medium called Encaustic which consist of beeswax, resins and pigments. It brings translucency, depth and texture. I usually combined it with acrylic paints, bisque, papers and other found objects to create patterns and textures to my Arts. Most of my Arts have 3 dimensional effects and presents sculptural outcomes.
My creations aim to reveal the undiscovered beauty of nature, to showcase its magnificent beauty and; to help understand and appreciate our environment. With this inspiration and its totality, I am able to manifest that nature can be one of the Masterpiece for Art.
