Yuk King Tan’s work spans diverse materials and media, contemplating the intersection between culture, work and identity. Her mug, 'Warriors', is taken from an installation piece entitled ‘Overflow’ and depicts terracotta warriors covered in traditional Chinese red sealing wax, articulating questions of power, sovereignty and beauty. Tan was born in Australia, studied art in New Zealand and has shown widely in Europe, America and Asia, including large projects at Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and Camden Arts Centre, London.
