Trained as a sculptor from an early age, Wallace Chan has over the span of four decades, created exquisite pieces from referencing traditional Chinese icons, incorporating elements of nature, and experimenting with elaborate sculptural flair. He continues to tirelessly experiment with different methods and materials to bring to life his poetic vision, embodying his design philosophy of harmonising the symbol of heaven, earth and humanity.
