Harvey Chan | He was born in Hong Kong, China.
He has established himself as an illustrator
since he graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design.
For many years, Harvey's diversified
approach in commercial assignments has also greatly reflected
on his personal works. Human figure has always been a primary
interest in his drawings, paintings and sculptures.
Harvey has received numerous
awards through his career as illustrator. He has also created
two series of coin design for the Royal Canadian Mint and most
recently, the Year of the Rat stamp design for Canada Post.
In recent years, spiritual and
natural forms has slowly emerged and taking central stage. Fantastical
and hybrid forms are also found their place in Harvey's most recent
personal works and commercial commissions, Harvey also found time
to teach drawing, painting and illustration at Ontario College
of Art and Design, and Sheridan College. Harvey has taught figure
sculpture at The Toronto School of Art.
