Albert Chan examines narrative, mythology and cultural archetypes, reinterpreting them through the multi-dimensional lenses of modern popular culture. Contrasts and similarities of stories from both Eastern and Western cultures is communicated via modern media imagery drawn from comic books, video games and animation; and sees a body of painted work across multiple formats including acetate, perspex, skateboards and traditional line drawing.

Albert is currently based in Melbourne, Australia. He completed a BFA in Painting from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Art (Christchurch, New Zealand) in 2007. Recently he's been exhibiting in New Zealand and Australia and was awarded the Press Peoples Choice award 2009 (COCA Anthony Harper Contemporary Art Award 2009).
