Wallace Chan founded his gemstone carving workshop in 1974, when he was 17. In 1987, he invented the world-renowned illusionary carving technique “Wallace Cut”. In 2001, he created the Great Stupa housing Buddha’s tooth (Taiwan). After 8 years of research, he tamed titanium and created ethereal jewelry pieces that surprised the world. He is the first Asian jewelry artist to exhibit at GIA headquarter (2011, US), Biennale des Antiquaires (2012 & 2014, France), TEFAF: The European Fine Art Fair (2016, Netherlands), and Masterpiece (2016, UK). In 2015, his illustrated monograph was published worldwide by Rizzoli. A solo exhibition was also held in HKCEC, invited by Christie’s.
Recognized as a top jewelry artist and innovator, international media features him extensively. Wallace Chan’s one-of-a-kind creations reflect his Zen philosophy and reveal unique craftsmanship invented by his persistence in innovation. They are feather-like jewels carrying messages of the past to become the heritage of the future.
