Ernest Chang

Ernest Chang is a Chinese American artist with deuteranopia (red-green color-blindness) producing in Hong Kong. He sees the vibrantly global metropolis from a unique perspective, one which imbues his creative practice with a heavy use of cutting-edge visual media, digital platforms, futuristic compositional elements, as well as heightened color contrasts and contours. His works investigate the under-examined social and societal tensions in contemporary city-life, in which technology is becoming ever more personal and interpersonal.

As a steadily emerging artist, he opened The Stallery, a hybrid gallery, and studio for art and portraiture on Wanchai’s historic Stone Nullah Lane where Chinese and Western cultures constantly fuse and collide. Chang has exhibited his mixed media works and photographs in solo exhibitions at multiple venues such as his studio in Wanchai – The Stallery, the Affordable Art Fair, Harley-Davidson of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Foreign Correspondents Club; as well as Artourage’s new Art-in-Residence in March 2017. Most notably in September 2016, his exhibition of photographs taken inside the original Blue House before its renovations began won wide media acclaim.

Blue House Series

In early 2016, Artist Ernest Chang was given exclusive permission to use his photographic lens to document the interior of the almost 100 years old Blue House in Wan Chai, a Hong Kong symbol of heritage preservation, before it was revamped and revitalized. The Blue House collection consists of 30 images selected from the photographs taken on March 8 2016, one day before the construction work began. These fine art prints won wide media acclaim and were successful in raising funds which were donated in contribution to the Blue House Cluster Project. UNESCO Asia-Pacific recently awarded the Blue House with the Cultural Heritage Conservation Award in 2017 for its excellence in the revitalization of the Blue House Cluster and its surrounding community.
