Artist: Mei Fung Elizabeth Chan is a multidiscipline artist who is currently based in Long Island, New York. She was born and raised in Kowloon, Hong Kong in 1988. Her family is from Fujian. She received her MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in 2017, and her Bachelor of Arts from Bridgewater State University in 2014.
Artist Statement: Portraiture allows Mei to express each character, emotions, and personalities. She mainly uses self-portrait to create complex narratives related to contemporary society. Plants, animals, and objects have their own symbolic meanings. It is something so close to us that we did not even recognize them.
Her work is based on psychological observations that are represented by her inner voice. She makes prints to describe her emotions from her life as a diary. By expressing her visual language, self-portraits and its colored palette reveal her personality.
