Chan is a Chicago based artist with-in the words of Chan-a Bay Area heart. His rigorous paintings, works-on-paper and durational performances record the minutia of daily life, while combining historical and fictitious narratives to reflect on such themes as spirituality and environmental sustainability. Chan develops his work through a highly personal, meditative practice that involves making daily Sumi ink drawings that give “value and meaning to everyday life through painting.”
