about

b. 1997 kenosha, wisconsin 🧀


ethan chan is an artist working in sculpture, installation, and performance art based in chicago, illinois.

using off-kilter materials including Happy Meal toys, bubble gum, and sauce packets, his work examines a love for all things kitsch, cookie-cutter, and plastic, the place these objects hold in american culture, and how their history and usage can affect the ways in which we perceive them, highlighting the absurdity of the found objects and concepts that shape our society.
