|Place of birth: Hong Kong|

|Chan is a self-taught artist, who took his first art lesson at the Extra-Mural Studies Course of The University of Hong Kong. He is particularly interested in acrylic painting with pure colours and bold, simple forms. His works have a high degree of abstraction showing semi-figurative imagery that may sometimes appear naive or erotic. He founded and chaired the Artmatch Group in 1995. His works were shown in more than 100 major exhibitions in Hong Kong and overseas. Chan was awarded the MBE in 1986 and won the Artist of the Year Awards of Hong Kong in 1990.|
