Geraldine Lau was born in Singapore in 1970. She is both an artist and designer who specializes in graphic design and print production. Her art has been displayed in museums in the United States and abroad, and commissioned site-specific murals. She is known for her murals in which she uses everyday, common bonding materials like tape and vinyl adhesives to explore aspects of layered history and cartography. Inspired by turn-of-the-century maps, Lau reveals accidental and manipulated inaccuracies hidden within the authority of mapped information.
Lau received her BA from RMIT University in Singapore (1994) and an MFA in Painting from the School of Visual Arts (1997). She lives and works in New York City and Tokyo.
