Born in Hong Kong in 1997, Kristy M Chan is a painter based in London. She first studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, graduating with a First-Class Honours Bachelor’s Degree in 2019. A year later, she left the Sotheby’s Institute of Art with a Master’s in Contemporary Art. Her work has been exhibited not just in the UK but also across Europe and Asia. She has a solo show coming up in the near future with KOVET.ART in London. Her work will also be present at the Monaco Art Fair 2021, where she will be represented by the Van Gogh Gallery in Madrid.

Chan has additional representation from the House2Six gallery in New York and the Visual Space Gallery in Cyprus. She has been a part of residencies in the UK, Finland, Germany, and Chile, which have all piqued her interest in the themes of migration and displacement. Since March 2020, Chan’s work has been selected for display in eight online exhibitions. Her paintings can also be found in several private collections in Europe, Asia, and America.
