Hong-Kong based, self-trained artist Wallace Chan has gained worldwide recognition for pioneering titanium’s unprecedented use in art. Beginning as a gemstone carver in 1973, his material-focused practice encompasses jewellery, sculpture and carving, and has led to the creation of numerous innovations, including The Wallace Cut (1987) and The Wallace Chan Porcelain (2018), housed permanently in collections across the world, including Long Museum (Shanghai), Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The British Museum (London) and Capital Museum (Beijing).

Join the artist in conversation with V&A jewellery curator Emefa Cole, for an in-depth discussion about his wide-ranging career including the importance of materials and his ever-evolving practice.
