Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

‘Lucky’ is the latest exhibition from Australian Artist and Textile Designer Chris Chun, which features the 12 animals of the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Each animal combines traditional Asian symbolism with contemporary Western sensibilities to bring good fortune, health and happiness to their owner.

As the symbol of Chinese culture, the dragon represents authority and good fortune. It has the 5th position among the Chinese Zodiac animals.

People born in the year of the Dragon are powerful, kind-hearted, successful, innovative, brave, fearless, healthy courageous and enterprising.

Artist Profile

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.
