Sim Chan

Born: 1987

Hometown: Hong Kong

Based in: Hong Kong

 

Born in Hong Kong in 1987 and graduated from Hong Kong Arts School, Major in Painting. Sim’s work is a tangible expression of the desire to unlock and blur boundaries of forms within the city. He was selected as one of the nominees for the Sovereign Asian Art Prize 2011, and was awarded “40under40” global creative talent by Perspective Magazine in 2013. He has actively participated in various art exhibitions since 2007 in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Singapore, Tokyo, Bangkok and Melbourne, and his works have been collected by private collectors in Hong Kong and abroad.

The series of “SimSky” is a collection that express a concept of boundary; especially as it relates to the experience of living in a city. The inspiration comes from the aerial view of the sky in the city. Sim has transformed view into symbols and signs and put these together through the traditional handmade wooden frame in order to show the variety of human life.

By shaping the outlines and calculating the angels of the frames, and turning these into paintings on canvas, painting the views on them, Sim addresses issues of modern, city life society and represents how the society changes nature. He uses photographs and videos to record the whole making process. These records show how Sim is using a mathematic methods to create the angles which are accurate and complex, chopping the sky into a series of “weird pieces”
