THE FIRST CHINESE JEWELRY ARTIST AT TEFAF

Taking place at Maastricht, a historical Dutch town close to the border of Belgium and Germany, TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) is universally regarded as the world’s leading art fair which defines “Excellence”, “Expertise” and “Elegance” in art.

2016 TEFAF will be held from 11 to 20 March, with 10 March being the VIP Preview.
Wallace Chan, the first Chinese jewelry artist ever invited to exhibit at this art fair, will present his jewelry art creations, glass carvings and large-scaled titanium sculptures, sharing with international collectors his creative path from the traditional to the contemporary and from the East to the West. www.tefaf.com

About Wallace Chan
Today recognized as jewelry creator, artist and philosopher, Wallace Chan founded his own gemstone carving workshop in 1974, when he was 17.
In 1987, he invented the “Wallace Cut”, an illusionary carving technique that transcends dimensions. As a result, he was crowned the “Carving Prodigy from Asia” by European media. In 2001, after a decade immersing in Buddhist art, he created the Great Stupa for Fo Guang Shan, Taiwan.
Chan also spent 8 years to experiment with titanium, the most bio-friendly metal known to date. He surprised BASELWORLD 2007 with a series of jewelry creations featuring ethereal titanium structures, the technical secrets of which he later unveiled to the world.

Chan was the first Chinese jewelry artist ever invited to exhibit and deliver speeches at the GIA headquarter. In 2012 and 2014, he emerged at the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris as the first and only Asian artist ever invited to exhibit at this fair.
International media has featured Wallace Chan extensively, introducing his creations as well as innovations, to name but a few – the patented jadeite thinning and luminosity enhancing technology, and his revolutionary gemstone-setting-gemstone technique. www.wallace-chan.com
