His innate skill, artistry and craftsmanship turned him talk-of-the-fair. “I enjoy the energetic city vibe here and value the direct communications with New York’s cultivated, outspoken art lovers. When curating for this exhibition, my inspiration came from the ever-relevant and culturally boundless beauty of the universe. The viewers’ resonance has realised and completed my vision”, Chan said about his first exhibition in New York.

At the panel discussion, Wallace Chan expressed, “I support that we embrace technology, but it is not necessary to place the digital world and the physical world on opposite ends of the spectrum. From a creator’s point of view, I am sure that the space where the two worlds overlap lies the future of creativity.” Wallace Chan at New York TEFAF panel discussion www.wallace-chan.com
