Chris Huen

(b. 1991, Hong Kong)
Chris Huen Sin Kan’s paintings are characterized by his pursuit to capture the details and minutiae of everyday life. Huen meticulously observes personal yet commonplace occurrences drawn from his studio/home. He seldom plans for a painting; keeping his brush strokes gestural and light as he works to catch a moment before it passes.

Huen prefers to avoid grandiose, man-made topics such as history, religion and politics. In contrast, he believes that life should be informed by personal intuition. He is particularly drawn to fanatical behaviors and trivial moments that carry vitality, such as potted plants in the corners of his apartment or his dog sleeping on a sofa. His subjects lie within the reality of human nature. It is through painting Huen experiences the nuances of looking and builds an archive of the experiential phenomena of life.

Huen has a BA in Fine Arts from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. He currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
