Biography Luis Chan
Luis Chan was born in Panama and moved to Hong Kong in 1910. He spent his early days working as a typist in a law firm and designing fonts for a ferry boat company. A self-taught artist who painted in his spare time, Chan learned through a correspondence course from the Press Art School in London. Luis Chan’s art does not concern so much with being western or eastern, but rather he focused on the imagination brought to his works. The features come from Chan’s wild imagination and use of a kaleidoscopic range of fantastical colours, and are teeming with childlike whimsy.
