Born in the US but raised in Hong Kong, artist and photographer Ernest Chang now works and resides in Wan Chai; this celebrated urban district providing the metaphorical muse for all of his works. A former student of both Ringling College of Art and Design, Florida, and Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Hong Kong, Chang ceased his formal education in favour of the growth through experience derived from the application of his artistic endeavour in Hong Kong, an urban environment which amplifies so many of his perceptions. He seeks to question the audience regarding their relationship with technology, for better or for worse – a relationship for which the artist himself is conflicted.

Chang is the artistic director of The Stallery, a Studio cum Gallery based on Stone Nullah Lane which collaborates with and exhibits emerging Hong Kong artists and where he creates. He was also granted permission to capture photographically Wan Chai’s iconic ‘Blue House,’ before its reincarnation, and seeks to cherish and celebrate the districts history and to ‘Keep Wan Chai weird’.

The following artworks have been created for his exhibition “Tear & Consume – An Art Experiment”.
