Dan Chan’s (he/they) current practice explores the relationship with themself as a mixed-race queer person in the LGBTQ+ community and wider society. These themes are entwined with their own spiritual experience and the impact this has on the self. Through this he takes the time to unlearn biases put upon him, by society, to create space to learn and meet their authentic self. By working intuitively, Chan communicates through painting, printed and embroidered textiles, garments and sculpture. Each of these elements allows him to channel ideas in ways that are appropriate to the theme of the work.
