Born in 1963, Tan Haur is a Singaporean who has been a moving force in digital photography, product & graphic design, digital imaging art, digital painting and underwater art making. Graduated from Australian National University (Master of Visual Arts) with a major in digital imaging & photography, before committed himself as a fulltime art advisor & artist, he worked as a chief curator cum manager for epSITE Digital Imaging Academy & Gallery (2000 -2005). This was a career that allowed Tan Haur to pursue his interest as well as create digital art awareness in the regional context. In year 2007, Tan Haur spearheaded a pioneer digi-art program supported by the Singapore Ministry of Arts - CCS in organizing workshops and seminars for the public on digital imaging & painting, photograph editing, restoring and archiving techniques. He has traveled to many countries to create art high up at the summit as well as deep down in the ocean environment, and received numerous distinctive arts awards and art contribution medals from USA, Australia and Singapore.


Tan Haur was the Creative Project Consultant from 1987 to 2000, and his job scope included undertaking consultancy work for digital art and graphics-related jobs worldwide. His years as the Creative Project Consultant saw him supervising assignments covering photography, digital imaging, loyalty programs, graphic design, advertising & promotions, exhibition & interior design, product design, visual identity programs and corporate branding programs. He has successfully merged his passion and talent together with his career in the art, digital imaging & creative industries and has proved not just to be a talented artist, but also a valuable member of the digital art community.

Tan Haur’s love for digital art, photography, painting and underwater sketching has motivated him to share this new genre with other enthusiast. He maintains a personal website where he shares his work and passion.

Recently Tan Haur also represented Singapore for the ASEAN Art for All 2008 in Thailand organized by the Thai secretariat of the ASEAN Committee on Culture and Information to promote effective cooperation in the fields of culture and information for the purpose of enhancing mutual understanding and solidarity among the peoples of ASEAN as well as in furthering regional development.

Furthermore, Tan Haur was also one of the two mentors, along with Chng Seok Tin to create visual art/design for the Singapore National Day Parade 2008 goodie bag. Through a printmaking and digital art workshop mentorship by Mr. Tan Haur and Ms. Chng Seok Tin, students from Very Special Arts and School of the Arts were tasked to create the visual artwork for the 2008 National Day Parade goodie bag to be given to the spectators. This is also one of Tan’s art and design projects that has closely integrated Fine Art and Product Design in a symbolic manner. He will be looking into more cross disciplinary projects in the very near future.
