"The Penguin Princess" is adapted from Velasquez’s ‘Infanta Margarita Teresa in a White Dress’. From the fluffy, three-dimensional dress of the 5-year-old princess, the artist linked the scenario of the king penguin’s move to protect the penguin in the painting “The Penguin Princess”, and the appearance of little penguin hiding at the feet of the parents during the cold gives the work a different meaning to this painting. Chan was born in Taipei in 1983. He graduated from the Fine Arts Department of the National Taiwan University of Arts and post graduated from Fine Arts of National Taiwan Normal University in 2002 and 2006. He is good at using classical techniques to create an atmosphere, re-arranging people and things in the real world, and constructing a self-contained narrative style.
