Honorroller / Christopher Chan
2023 Information

Christopher Chan is an artist with a multidisciplinary practice that combines sculpture, illustration, and graphic design to explore social constructs, branding, popular culture, and the transition from youth to adulthood. Often rendered primarily in wood, his geometric sculptures use abstract visual language to depict contemporary fashion and footwear. With these principles at the forefront of his work, Chan retains the organic element of the material to represent a mass-produced consumer good. Although they emulate iconic footwear, the rigid forms themselves are created to host and support live plants & flowers. 

Christopher was born in Toronto, Ontario. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He received a BFA in Studio Art at the University of California, Irvine and later he received his second BFA in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His background is in art direction, design & illustration. He has exhibited and preformed in galleries, museums, institutions, and festivals nationally and internationally.
