Tobe Kan (b.1984 in Hong Kong) currently lives and works in Hong Kong. She obtained a Bachelor (Fine Art) degree co-presented by RMIT University and Hong Kong Art School in 2017. In recent years, Tobe has been interested in observing the various vegetation that coexists with humans when walking around. Her current practice investigates the boundaries between life and death, which examines the condition of insecurity concerning feelings of alienation and being forgotten and distant together with “existence.” Furthermore, the mystic-blue botanical paintings reveal the uncanny and mysterious feelings of hovering between asleep and awake, dream and reality. Tobe experiments with a broad range of paintings, drawings, and installations, and her artworks are kept in numerous private collections.
