Serial entrepreneur, truth seeker, outlandish raconteur, avant-garde adventurer… These are just a few of the self-proclaimed social dispositions of the young Indonesian collector Nicholas Tan, who has been frequently spotted in the art scene during the last 10 years. These changing roles, in fact, best capture the young millennial’s life in 4 acts: a millennial techie who invests and leads several financial tech startups in Indonesia; one of the most prominent young collectors in Southeast Asia, whose passion for art is guided by his search for truth; a weekend musician who loves entertaining friends and strangers alike with his unique DJ style; a serious seeker of inner peace and outer balance through meditation and yoga.
Described by his collector friends as someone who “listens and learns very fast” and is “passionate” about art, Nicholas has a penchant for tech, digital art, and minimalist works that reflect his state of mind. He sums up his understanding of art in these few words, “Contemporary art is the art of registering the spirit of the time.” Nicholas loves leisure and travelling adventurously, either for art, music or nature. Here, he shares his top picks from Art Basel fair with us.
