Mintio
Singapore , 1986
BIO
Mintio (Singapore) began her practice as a fine art photographer while pursuing her Bachelors in Fine Art at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University in 2005. As an artist, her work puts priority on the process as well as maintaining a high-level of craft in image making. Working primarily with large format photography, she believes that technical choices are the key elements in the personalization her work. In her most notable series “Concrete Euphoria”, Mintio works uses the large format camera to photograph urban landscapes around Asia. Despite the discipline-oriented methodology, she allows chance, chaos and emotional impulse to be huge driving forces in her practice. Her subsequent series “Conveyance” was acquired by the Singapore Art Museum. Mintio’s subsequent body of work, “~*THOY*~ (The Hall of Hyperdelic Youths)”, exploring the connections between spirituality and the cyber-world through adolescent computer gamers, was exhibited at Valentine Willie Fine Art around the Southeast Asian region. Mintio began her first artist in residence program with photography collective MES 56 in Yogyakarta. There he had developed a project with a relational front called “Malam di Jari Kita” or “The Wax on Our Fingers”. This series is now a collection at the National University of Singapore Museum.
