Wing Chan uses photomontage for a wide range of artistic expression that is grounded more in painting than in photography. Leveraging photographic technology to capture reality, Chan transforms this into masterful works of art, some imbued with rich elements of Abstract Expressionism, others reflecting a fusion of pop art, street art and graffiti iconography, in which we discover strands of the graffiti art of Jean-Michel Basquiat and the looping figures of Keith Haring. His work dances with rhythms of bold colours and texture; there is no little drama in these images. Chan's works exemplify the importance of artistic sensibility and demonstrate how style can evolve to produce new extremes of creative spontaneity.
