Jon Chan Weiwen (b. 1982 )

Jon Chan is a Singaporean painter who explores the dimensions between unsolicited real-time performances and their meditation and circulation as images, attenuating any parallels between these two domains. His works in this exhibition will draw inspiration from his interest in comics as well as real-time situations. He attained his Diploma in Fine Art (Painting), Bachelor of Arts (First Class Honours) and Masters of Fine Arts in Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore, and has been awarded the Winston Oh Travel Award in both 2003 and 2007. He has also been a recipient of the JCCI Arts Awards in 2007.
