Born in Jakarta, Indonesia and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Tessar Lo approaches his work with a sense of playfulness and a love of chance. He is interested in producing non-linear narratives that touch on parallel realities, different experiences of time, the process of remembering, and the ways that cultural shifts and imaginative acts can transform individuals. He also enjoys linguistic creativity, humour and the preposterous. Since graduating with a BAA from the Sheridan College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, Lo has spent extended periods of time in Los Angeles and various parts of Indonesia. He has shown his work in solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, San Francisco, Miami, Barcelona, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Amsterdam.
He currently lives and works in Toronto.
