Luis Chan was an eccentric Hong Kong genius who, as one of the first generation of Chinese modern painters, has become legendary in the history of Chinese contemporary art. The full corpus of Luis Chan’s work in his long artistic life is breathtaking in scope. Chan was born in Panama in 1905 to Cantonese parents and settled in Hong Kong with his family in 1910. From his first solo debut exhibition in 1933 until his final show in 1993, Luis Chan presented 47 solo exhibitions over his long career and published countless articles on modern art. The Power Station of Art, the first state-run museum dedicated to contemporary art, presented a major retrospective exhibition for Luis Chan from March to June 2019, featuring more than 100 pieces of works.
