Peter Chan (b. 1985) currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada. He received his Bachelor of Applied Arts (BAA) from Sheridan College in 2008. His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions worldwide including in Hong Kong, London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Montreal, and Toronto. He has also been included in the Art with Heart Collection for Casey House in Toronto, auctioned off at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Chan’s narrative themes can be considered autobiographical, though the artist often explores critical themes from East Asia. In his work, he distorts and recomposes imagery to form compositions that allow for new narratives and meaning. Currently, he is interested in the themes of superstition, identity, popular culture, traditions, and gender ideologies. The artist uses a mix of contemporary figures to form new stories by reintroducing them with both historical and contemporary references. Chan is also a professor and lecturer at OCAD University, Sheridan College, and Seneca College. His work has been featured in numerous publications and newspapers including Tatler Hong Kong, Yahoo News, BOOOOOOOM, La Presse, Ming Pao Daily, and Rogers Television Canada.
