WAL­LACE CHAN

Solitaire (Singapore) - - SARTORO -

Wal­lace Chan’s ap­proach to jew­ellery, ob­jets d’art, and adorn­ments is as much in­tel­lec­tual as it is emo­tional. In his opinion, jew­ellery is more than just adorn­ment. A piece of jew­ellery does not only tell stories as car­ri­ers of her­itage, it is a re­flec­tion of the times it was cre­ated.

Gem­stones are Wal­lace’s lan­guage, and through them he trans­lates his mes­sages. His pas­sions for art, na­ture, cul­ture, phi­los­o­phy, tech­nol­ogy and change drive his de­sign process, cre­at­ing one-of-a-kind pieces that tran­scend the bound­aries of con­tem­po­rary jew­ellery.

Wal­lace Chan is a jew­ellery cre­ator and in­no­va­tor. His thirst for knowl­edge has led to his cre­ation of nu­mer­ous in­no­va­tions, in­clud­ing The Wal­lace Cut — an il­lu­sion­ary three-di­men­sional carv­ing tech­nique in­vented in 1987, a mas­tery of ti­ta­nium in jew­ellery making, a patented jadeite lu­mi­nos­ity-en­hanc­ing tech­nol­ogy, the in­ven­tion of elab­o­rate gem­stone set­tings with­out metal-claws, and most re­cently, The Wal­lace Chan Porce­lain, a ma­te­rial five times stronger than steel.

He was the first Chi­nese jew­ellery artist to ex­hibit at pres­ti­gious art fairs like The Euro­pean Fine Art Fair held in Maas­tricht and the Bi­en­nale des An­ti­quaires in Paris. Some of his solo ex­hi­bi­tions have been held at Christie’s Gallery (Hong Kong, 2019), the Ge­mo­log­i­cal In­sti­tute of Amer­ica Mu­seum (Carls­bad, 2011); the Cap­i­tal Mu­seum (Bei­jing, 2010); Kaoh­si­ung Mu­seum of His­tory (Tai­wan, 1999), and the Deutsches Edel­stein­mu­seum (Idar-ober­stein, 1992).
