Tristan Lim is a visual artist whose practice uncovers semiotic relationships between disparate things. Examining the logic that motivates the appearances
and circulation of images, presences, merchandise, brands, advertisements and models, ideas of significance and representation are questioned by
generating distortions within these cultural forms.

Primarily working with animation and media technologies, disrupting these forms opens them up to misintepretations and meaning making.
Using these distorted fragments of culture as points of departure, virtual worlds and entities are manifested in his works, 
examining the ways in which we perceive and engage with virtuality and reality.

Having completed his Bachelor in Fine Arts (First Class Honours) from LASALLE College of Fine Arts in partnership with Goldsmiths,
College of London, he has been engaged in various projects and group exhibitions in Singapore.
