Eric Chan (born on March 28, 1975 in Kuala Lumpur) is one of Southeast Asia’s notable contemporary painters. He is currently based in Singapore. A Master’s of Fine Art (Painting) graduate of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia and Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore, Chan has carved out a reputation for reinvigorating interest in painting as a resonant contemporary medium. His paintings are shaped by photographic and camera effects and aesthetics — from the blurring or smearing of paintings (simulating photographic images taken with slow shutter speed) to the distinctive graphics of film negatives with its tonal inversions.
