Tintin Cooper (born 1982, Bangkok) is a mixed Thai-English artist working in Berlin and Bangkok.  She grew up in over 17 countries and regularly cites this chaotic influence on her works which take the form of image and video appropriations, light work, painting and installations.  

Recent projects include ‘POOL’ for Artist+Run Gallery and Bangkok Biennial‚ ‘Monologue Dialogue’ at BACC and Koppel Projects, London (2017, 2014)‚ ‘31' at Philip Pflug, Frankfurt (2016), with publications by Verlag für Moderne Kunst (Vienna) and Gestalten (Berlin).  Her video works have shown at Tate Britain, Transmediale, Sydney Biennial and Bangkok Biennial.

Her works are often funny and  appropriate popular culture images and cartoon illustrations (such as football, self-defense, the army and war, yoga and pseudo-spirituality fads), which are then deconstructed by using various media, including installation, neon light, video, and painting. 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.
