Sim Chan / 陳閃
Sim Chan / 陳閃 (b.1987), work expresses his observation and tactile sense of his city. Apart from this depiction, his irregular hand-crafted frame of the sky, his kite, and his back-lit canvas paintings, all show his desire to work beyond
the usual format of painting as a medium. The experiments and study of different painting materials have become his recent subject of interest. No matter if it is about the limited sky or the paint and canvas, Sim’s work is contemplation about himself and the context, documents his exploration between imagination and reality, perception, and form.
He participated at the 15th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition "Stratagems in Architecture" in 2016.
He participated in various art exhibitions actively since 2007. Sim's work has been exhibited in different cities such as Hong Kong, Macau, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Singapore, Tokyo, Thailand, Korea, London, Venice, Zurich, and Melbourne. Collectors of his art include APO's Public Art Collections, Hysan Place, Leo Gallery, Red Elation Gallery, and private collections in Hong Kong and abroad.
