Chris Chun

Chris Chun

Hometown: Melbourne

Based in: Australia and Thailand

Chris Chun is known for his work in contemporary chinoiserie, a distinctly modern twist on traditional Chinese art that combines vibrant colour and pattern with his love of nature and the environment.  An Australian textile designer with Chinese heritage, Chris honed his craft in Europe designing for well respected textile design studios whose clients included the likes of Giorgio Armani, Missoni, Diane Von Furstenberg & Laura Ashley.

He is also an acclaimed fine artist, Chris creates originals and limited edition prints that are snapped up by collectors who have coined his style ’Chunoiserie’ and affectionately refer to themselves as ‘Chunistas’. His incorporation of visual storytelling and symbolism result in an emotional connection with buyers who appreciate the meaning in each piece and want to own a piece of ‘everyday beauty’. Featured in SMH, Belle magazine, Design Sponge, and various publications around the world, Chris today divides his time working between Asia and Australia, exhibiting as an artist and collaborating with clients all over the world.
