Born and bred in a bustling city, Chan finds himself living his daily life among the crowds. He is especially captivated by the city after the night falls, as it is the moment when he can enjoy time to himself. “Voyage of the Night” is a combination of Chan’s own lessons and the essence of life gained from his personal experiences. He acknowledges that his creations are neither elegant nor perfect, but truthfully present the beauty of fragility.
