The digital chaos of Eric Chan

Eric Chan To See To Hear To Speak

‘To See, To Hear, To Speak’ is the latest personal work by Eric Chan, aka eepmon. He describes it as the antithesis to the idiom ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’

Since winning an Excellence Award in Computer Arts (opens in new tab)' 2009 Graduate Showcase, New York-based multidisciplinary artist Eric Chan (opens in new tab) has been steadily carving his niche in the creative industry, and adding a host of high-profile clients to his portfolio as he goes. Currently busy working with cold weather outerwear manufacturer Canada Goose on a limited edition line for its 2014 collection, Chan has also found time to update his portfolio with 'To See, To Hear, To Speak', a new print available in giclee and digitally - and a prime example of his antonymic approach.

"Everything is in a state of balance," Chan says, describing the piece, which is titled after the idiom 'See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil'. "Where there is light, there is dark. Where there is good, there is evil. Where there is peace, there is war. If there are good monkeys, there have to be bad ones, too."

Other recent self-initiated pieces on his website include 'Future Garden' and 'Resilience'. Chan is an Adobe devotee, working across Photoshop, Illustrator (opens in new tab) and Flash (opens in new tab), with a Wacom Intuos and a MacBook by his side. "I can’t really pin down exactly what my style is," he says. "I'd say a mix of analogue and digital, order and chaos."
