Tamen

Born: 1978

Hometown: Hunan Province

Lives and Works: Beijing

 

Tamen (他们) is an artist collective composed of two young Chinese artists, Lai Shengyu (赖圣予) and Yang Xiaogang (杨晓钢), who were born in Hunan Province in 1978 and 1979, respectively. The group is alternatively referred to as ‘They’, which is the English translation of their name. As a collective, they reject notions of self and individuality in art by co-painting each work and collaborating in a manner that draws attention away from the individual.

Lai and Yang received post-graduate degrees from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in the Department of Printmaking and are currently based in Beijing where they work at Beihang University (BUAA) in the Department of New Media Art. The artist collective Tamen was founded in 2003 based on the artists’ common understanding and ideal of contemporary art.
