Artist Biography

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 upon the world and the city in which he lives since his graduation from Fine Art, at the Hong Kong Art School in 2008. Sim’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 is specifically interested in the concept of restrictions, limitations and possibilities encountered within the everyday life. His visual representations are a rigorous resistance against these restraints. His work often presents views of life exclusive to 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.

The series of ‘Sim City’ evolves from personal considerations between remembering and forgetting the past. Each work has been built from the outcomes of the last, the works represent ways to personally involve and acknowledge the memories of entangled histories of the city.

Sim has exhibited in many group exhibitions since 2007; including Art Fair Tokyo in Japan, ShContemporary in Shanghai, FQProject Gallery in Shanghai and La Lanta Fine Art Gallery in Bangkok. He also exhibited at the New Gallery on Old Bailey, Red elation gallery, Fotanian Open Studios, The Pao Galleries, Wan Fung Gallery, White Arcade, A&M Art Workshop, A Gallery and A Link Gallery in Hong Kong. His work has been collected by national and international private art collectors.

Sim is currently collaborating with TOYO it Art & Research Laboratory on various cross-cultural projects.
About my artwork
閃城 Sim City

Architecture determines the appearance of a city.

It also represents human’s life.

It brings human and space into harmony.

Hong Kong is a city being dominated by commercial activities.

People work for living and live for working like a robot.

Life lost its meaning under this repeating rhythm.

At the same time, talent is lost. Dream is lost, too.

Besides of wealth, status and fame,

should we be conscious of our lifestyle?

What are people busy with?

Why am I busy? Why do I keep painting?

What is the goal of life?

Outside the city,

there are glamorous lights and prosperous streets.

The rhythm of lines and distribution of space create a beauty of structure.

Inside the city,

it is abstract, lively and unstable.

It is full of chaos, rise and fall, true and false, cold and warm.

It seems to be free but is being constrained.

It is a love-hate relationship between the city and I.
