Singapore based artist Tan Zi Xi (also known by her moniker MessyMsxi) experiments with a variety of mediums. Zi Xi got a degree in Graphic Design (Illustration Major) from Central Saint Martins in London, UK. After staying in the UK for about six months post her graduation, she moved back to Singapore to start her life as an independent artist. Apart from her commercial work for brands, Zi Xi has collaborated with graphic designers, fashion labels and museums for various projects including public art.
Zi Xi was in Mumbai recently for St+art India’s Mumbai edition, for which she created a much talked about and appreciated installation called ‘Plastic Ocean’ at Sassoon Docks. This was a version of the installation she had originally created for the Singapore Art Museum.
We met Zi Xi over breakfast at Cafe Mondegar in Colaba to know more about her work and life. Read the interview: http://thefloatingmagazine.com/people-tan-zi-xi/
