Toronto The Brave: A Conversation with Tessar Lo

Tessar Lo was born in Indonesia and has lived and worked everywhere from Los Angeles to Amsterdam. His instinctive style emits a raw energy in which the boundaries between dreams and reality are fused into one. Spontaneous brushstrokes and collage techniques create a surreal world in which nature merges with being and children play amongst abstract stars and animals. Tessar has had works exhibited everywhere from Berlin to New York to San Francisco and has a solo show coming up this January 31st at Cooper Cole Gallery. Not long ago I payed him a studio visit and had an amazing conversation about dreams, change and tapping into the inner child.
