Tintin Cooper grew up in several countries including the Thai side of the Golden Triangle.
She is currently based in Bangkok and Berlin. Recent events include solo show ‘Pool’ at Artist+Run Gallery, Bangkok (2018), finalist at Contemporary Visions 9 at Beers London (2019), with talks at Asian Culture Station in Chiang Mai, Thailand (2018) and Koppel Projects, London.
Her appropriated video works have screened at Tate Britain, Transmediale Berlin and Gallery4A/Sydney Biennale and her artworks are in the Staedel Museum Frankfurt and DIB Bangkok Museum collections (Osatanukrau Collection).
Her works are often humorous and appropriate popular culture images and cartoon illustrations (such as football, martial arts, the army and war, yoga and pseudo-spirituality fads), which are then deconstructed in painting and mixed-media.
In a way her work mirrors what happens to images more generally today, namely being morphed and altered and disseminated via mass media and the Internet.
