About Tinyan Chan

Tinyan Chan’s unique painting style combines a compelling blend of Western and Asian aesthetics. Tinyan’s energetic, impressionistic style and fearless use of brilliant color reflect the diverse cultural influences of his life.

The delineations in Tinyan’s work recall beautiful expressions of classic Chinese calligraphy. Oriental color sensibility and serenely natural scenes allow strokes of fuchsia, yellow, and turquoise to combine harmoniously, where one might expect them to clash. With the delicate Chinese brush discipline, Tinyan scatters lively and undisciplined patches of brilliant color throughout his compositions. He deftly balances oriental and occidental components to arrive at his idiosyncratic diversity via the intriguing stylistic link.

Born in Hin Kwong Village, Go Yew County, Kwangtung, China in 1942 Tinyan is renowned in his native land for his masterful depictions of water scenes, woodland scenes and florals in both watercolor and oil. He was honored in 2012 with fortnight’s Life Retrospective – a 100-Piece Exhibition in Guangzhou province – and a civic award.

The youngest of an artistic family, Tinyan studied at Canton Academy of Fine Arts, whence he moved to Hong Kong to set up studio. His adventures took him to west Africa, where he designed gorgeous fabrics for Nigerian Textiles. The tranquil village life, spiced with exotic color and design, permanently influenced him.

Following his African adventure, Tinyan traveled throughout Europe. He studied at the prestigious École Nationale Superieure de Beaux-Arts in Paris. Finally, Chan settled in Canada in 1968, and became one of that country’s most celebrated artists. He was the youngest of 25 elected members of the esteemed Federation of Canadian Artists.
