Chris Huen Sin Kan
Artist-in-Residence Programme and Exhibition: Chris Huen Sin Kan
Chris Huen Sin Kan (b. 1991, Hong Kong) is an artist whose practice, with an emphasis on painting, explores the minute and exquisite experiences of everyday life. He obtained a BA in Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2013. He is particularly drawn to fanatical behaviours and trivial moments that carry immense vitality such as a small dog or an ordinary lawn. Huen’s large-scale oil paintings, a constellation of brush marks often starring a cast of recurring characters including his wife Haze, son Joel, daughter Tess and dogs Balltsz, MuiMui and Doodood, evolve organically and haphazardly. Recent solo exhibitions include Chris Huen: Blossoms In The Shade, Ota Fine Arts (Singapore, 2022). He currently lives and works in London. He is currently artist-in-residence at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, a programme hosted in collaboration with K11 Art Foundation.
