3/03/2022 Prints & Multiples , News Stories & Press Release
Meet Chankalun (@chankalun), a visual storyteller who pushes boundaries with her artistry. She splits her time between running design studio CeeKayEllo (CKL), local NGO HKCRAFTS, and neon bending! Having apprenticed with a 70-year-old local neon master in Hong Kong, and subsequently, with other neon artists around the world with “The Neon Girl” project, she became Hong Kong’s only active female neon practitioner in a male-dominant industry. She is adamant about giving a new lease of life to this dying art form, which was once a strong part of Hong Kong’s culture and was immortalised in many movies like Blade Runner. Chankalun wants to find ways to preserve this visual language and be the bridge that connects this traditional craft with the new generation of artists. Her mission- keep the neon legacy alive and kicking. Check out her TEDx talk here.
Here Chankalun took time out of her busy schedule to #take5 and pick five of her favourite lots in the upcoming Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples auction that will take place at Roseberys on Tuesday 8 March.
