Sim Chan is a Chinese artist who lives and works in Hong Kong. He has been exploring visual art and digital media to measure and reflect on the world and the city in which he lives since his graduation in Fine Arts from Hong Kong Art School in 2008 . Chan's work is a tangible expression of the desire to unlock and blur boundaries of forms within the city. At times, these boundaries are expressed in the silence of bright colors or in the boldness of lines, shapes and symbols within obscured borders and boundaries.
Sim Chan is specifically interested in the concept of restrictions, limitations and possibilities encountered in everyday life. His visual representations are a rigorous resistance against these restraints. His work often presents views of life, including the contemporary social issues of living in Hong Kong - limited spaces, limited skies. In the “Sim Sky” series, he delicately frames and measures the percentage of visible skies that might otherwise be too invisible or too obscured to be noticed.
Sim Chan has his first solo exhibition in 2011, titled " [KŌNG] ² - Sim Chan Solo Exhibition". He has participated numerous international group exhibitions including "ART FAIR TOKYO 2011" ; "Chinese 20th Century and Contemporary Art Autumn Auction 2010"; "ShContemporary 2010"in Shanghai and “The Trail of Time”in Thailand. He also took part in joint exhibition in Hong Kong: "VISION" Hong Kong Contemporary Art Exhibition & Hong Kong Cancer Fund Charity Auction; "3 IN 1- An exhibition by Pabro "; "Invitational Exhibition for HK Young Artist" and "1st Hong Kong Contemporary Arts Honors Show & Charity Auction 2009". He has continuously joined "Fotan Artist Open Studios” from 2008 to 2012.
Sim Chan has been awarded by Selected Finalist of Sovereign Asian Art Prize 2011, [Starlight Hong Kong] Outstanding Artist Grand Award and the Best Artwork Award in Painting in Hong Kong Art School.
