Doreen, Wing Yan Chan was born in 1987 in Hong Kong. Originally trained in Visual Communication, her creative outlet brought her to UK, where she joined East Street Arts and held an artist studio in 2010. She currently lives in Hong Kong.
Chan’s daily life is her main interest and inspiration of her creations. Working with images, videos and installations, she draws from various subjects that relate the intricacies of her identity to the surrounding environment. She believes “Images are just materials for my creations”.
She was invited to hold her first solo exhibition 25.9 at Lianzhou Foto Festival 2013 and exhibit her works in various exhibitions in Beijing, Gwangju and Hong Kong . Her work has been selected as one of the 2015 Three Shadows Photography Award Finalists.
