About the Artist

Kristy Chan (b. 1997, Hong Kong) is a contemporary artist whose works are dense with information often exploring odd depictions of the environment. Kristy's paintings reflect on her upbringing in Hong Kong. Her hologram-like works explore the notion of displacement, movement, and change. Kristy's recent works are a documentation of the visuals and sensations during her time spent with that piece of work. She often describes certain uncanny qualities of her works as “stolen realities” in her surroundings. Shapes and forms are imported into her images, leaving their original meaning behind. Kristy lives and works in London, UK.

About the Artwork

There’s a saying in Cantonese that translates as: one’s got more saliva than tea, meaning someone talks a lot, and thought it was really fitting when I went to meet friends that I haven’t seen for 2 years, and the conversations just never ends.
