Perhaps it is the serenity that one becomes a part of the nature, enlighting himself by direct intuition rather than by conscious effort.

In French means "Action to free one's self, to give freedom for one's own mind".



About the Artist

Alan Sik Kyin Chan was born in Guangzhou, China in 1945 and resided in Hong Kong with his parents when he was five. Having grown up in a full of life and multicultural city, Chan has always been fascinated by the images that emerged in varying forms with dynamic colors, such as Dragon Boats racing in the misty sea in the fishing village, or a hair-raising scene of a Jumbo Jet landing crossing the roofs at Kowloon's Kai Tak Airport. These images are often formed in random and at times poetic and graceful. Chan believes this is how the real world is represented then perceived directly by human senses and maybe eventually metamorphosed into art concepts through abstract thinking. This practice has been reflected in one of his recent works “Les Parapluies” (Umbrellas) which was the main focus of his 2016 solo exhibition in Hong Kong.


“My piece has nothing to do with the ideology behind the ' Umbrella Movement ',” he responded when being asked for the motivation by which the artwork was created.


“My piece has nothing to do with the ideology behind 'The Umbrella Movement ',” he responded when being asked for the motivation by which the artwork was created “I only see there is an immense scene of a tremendous number of colorful umbrellas that are in motion, and I am aware of a once in a lifetime opportunity to capture a critical instance from an unprecedented aesthetic phenomenon.”


Self-taught, Chan began painting as a means of self-satisfaction. Nevertheless, he took museums and art galleries that he frequently visited as alternative classrooms. He received education in Hong Kong, Taiwan, then France where he was finally settled down and started his career as an architect in Paris. In most of the spare time, Chan devoted himself to his passion for painting. His work has been exhibited in Paris, Belmont, New York, San Mateo, and Vienna. Chan is also the author of "The Charms of Jade”, “An Autumn in Paris”, “Les Cerfs-Volants” and others.


After retiring from his career in 2006, Chan kept up his spirit with art creativities. His first Hong Kong exhibition was held in Summer 2016, and the premier volume of his art book series "When Face to Face with a Modern Art" was launched in the same year.

廣州出生,香港長大。先後在臺灣、法國、奧地利接受教育。1979年定居法國,從事建築工程師,業餘寫作和繪畫。作品先後在巴黎、紐約、貝爾蒙特、 聖密狄奧、維也納等地展出。著有《玉的韻律》、《秋葉巴黎》、《無言》、《Les Cerfs-Volants》、《低迴雅典古城前》、《Sans Doute》、《愛恒存》 等書。 退休後潛心創作,2017年9月在香港舉行的畫展是他在當地的第二次個展。《當我們面對一件現代藝術品》同年在香港出版。

當初執筆繪畫祇是為了得到精神上的滿足,但竟然一往情深,在不自覺中激發出他對藝術的濃厚興趣,最後成為一生不斷在創作中追求自我突破的藝術家。陳錫灝的作品, 創作靈感主要是來自畫家在日常生活中以人類感知所捕捉到的現實世界元素,並且透過抽象思維探索出蘊藏其中的美學意義,從而穫得的藝術意念。
