Whitestone Gallery Hong Kong is pleased to announce Alan Chan’s first solo exhibition with the gallery WHO IS ALAN CHAN?…a journey of art since 1960s. A Hong Kong creative with a diversified practice in advertising, design and branding, the exhibition features a chronological selection of Chan's personal work, some new works and some dating back to the 1960s shown to the public for the first time, including graphic art, photography, installations and digital art, depicting the essence of his journey of art and design with powerful authorial presence to this day.
A showcase of his early graphic art as a student reflecting prevalent western influences; A Brand New Game (2006) mocks the intricate relationships between megabrand ‘rivals’ in the marketplace which intrinsically share similar visions towards consumer culture; the iEye-ai (‘ai’, the Mandarin pronunciation of ‘love’) iPhone photography series (2012) captures instantaneous moments during his travels in representation of our contemporaneous lifestyle.
