Lo­ca­tion: Hong Kong Web: http://ifxm.ag/frankchan Email: franklin20uk@gmail.com ME DIA: Pho­to­shop, Maya, MODO Franklin’s love of il­lus­tra­tion goes hand-in­hand with his love of films. “Grow­ing up, I saw many films and felt in­spired by epic sci-fi and fan­tasy scenes,” he says.

The Hong-Kong-based artist stud­ies photographs as he works, to add re­al­ism to his art. “The most im­por­tant thing is to cap­ture the mood you want to con­vey,” he says. “It’s like when you see an iconic shot from a clas­sic film: you can prac­ti­cally feel the mu­sic and the un­for­get­table sen­sa­tion it gives you.”

“My aim in this paint­ing was to cre­ate a moody set­ting. It’s in­ter­est­ing how bright light sources in the back­ground add to the som­bre at­mos­phere of the piece.”

“This is a per­sonal paint­ing in­spired by The Hob­bit – the book, not the re­cent films.”

Evil Corp

“I wanted to por­tray an evil cor­po­ra­tion built on the re­mains of a city de­stroyed by an apoc­a­lyp­tic event. Un­sur­pris­ingly, the head­quar­ters are based in the tallest tower.”

Re­search Lab­o­ra­tory

“This is an en­vi­ron­ment de­sign for a fu­ture game project that I worked on. The lab­o­ra­tory is set on Ence­ladus, one of the moons of Saturn.”
