What is it about Jason Chan‘s work that makes it so disturbingly beautiful? It could be the careless interplay between fantasies and nightmares he invokes with his gentle monsters and sinister heroes.
In Mr. Chan’s world, an angelic face may sometimes — but not always — hide an evil heart. Whatever their intentions, each image he creates is compellingly rendered with passion and precision.
Good or Evil, Jason’s unsettling disassociation between appearance and intent will force you to question the motivations of each of his characters, and challenge you to appreciate the ugly truths along with the seductive ones.
