MERRYN TREVETHAN captures and embodies her personal experiences in globalised cities through her vibrant speculative cityscapes.  She graduated with an MFA from Monash University, Australia (2005), relocated to Singapore in 2014 and now resides in Hong Kong.

Merryn was commissioned for Facebook’s Artist in Residency Program creating works for their APAC HQ and Singapore offices (in 2016/17 and 2020), and also created large-scale spatial interventions and public artworks for Singapore Arts Club.

Merryn works across a range of mediums from murals and spatial interventions, to painting, drawing, sculpture, artists books and animations.  Her works play on the uncertainty of perception, drawing attention to the act of looking itself and reminding us of the joy of seeing things in real life.

Key residencies include the Golden Foundation Residency Program in New York (2018); NPE Print Residency, Singapore (2018) and Red Gate International Artist Residency in Beijing, China (2009).  Merryn held her first solo exhibition at the Australian High Commission, Singapore, in 2016.  International group exhibitions include Made In Paint 2019 at Sam and Adele Golden Gallery, New York, USA; Apertures at Yeo Workshop, Singapore (2017) and This Wild Song at Town Hall Gallery, Melbourne, Australia (2018).  She has participated in public art festivals in Melbourne and in Singapore where in 2014 she was awarded first prize for DRIVE – Public Art Festival Open Call.

Curatorial projects include Rules of Engagement (2019) The Substation, Singapore and This Wild Song x Singapore (2018) celebrating International Women’s Day at the Australian High Commission, Singapore.  Merryn is a Certified GOLDEN Artist Educator and teaches acrylic and abstraction workshops at The Art Room.
