Doreen Wing Yan Chan was born in Hong Kong, in 1987. She has received training in visual communication and photography. Chan’s artistic practices focus on the investigations of personal perception, materiality, and daily details that are often overlooked. Key elements in her works include interpersonal relationships, personal memories, and fragmentary moments of daily life in the city. As a lens-based and site-specific artist, Chan believes that images are merely the raw materials. She integrates images with various media to re-examine the tensions between herself and the surrounding world.

Chan has had solo exhibitions at Lianzhou Foto Festival 2013 (Lianzhou, China), Kigoja (Seoul, South Korea), Charbon (Hong Kong), and HB Station: Contemporary Art Research Centre (Guangzhou, China). She has also exhibited her works in Beijing, Gwangju, Macau, New York, and several cities in the UK. Chan was a finalist in Three Shadows Photography Award 2015 and 2019 Art Sanya Huayu Youth Award. Chan currently lives in Hong Kong and Chicago.
