Biography Luis Chan
Luis Chan was born in Panama in 1905 and moved to Hong Kong in 1910.
Luis spent his early days working as a typist in a law firm and designing fonts for a ferry boat company.
Chan is a self-taught artist who painted in his spare time. He 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. He focused on the imagination brought to his works. These features come from Chan’s wild imagination and use of a kaleidoscopic range of fantastical colours, which are teeming with childlike whimsy.
Luis Chan passed away in 1995.
