Place of birth: China
Dates: 1947-

Chan completed his Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts at Concordia University in Canada. His major artistic interest lies in modern Chinese ink painting. The theme 'Life' recurs in many of his works. His earlier years spent in Montreal inspired him to work on snow scenes with life and he has produced around a hundred pieces of work on the motif of tree trunks and roots. The idea of perseverance and vitality expressed in those works became a symbol of his personal style. His works are collected by museums in Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, and the United States.
