Andre Kan was born in Toronto, Ontario. In 2014, Kan received his BFA from OCAD University in Toronto, and continues to pursue other artistic interests as a photographer, curator, producer, and musician.
His current work investigates the architectural interpretations that respond to our ever-advancing society, and suggests what “possibility” means through self-discovery. Examining what mark-making and its properties mean as well as the significance in cause and effect is an important aspect of Kan’s practice. Kan’s psychological structures depict change and evolution of space, while also questioning the fundamental nature of being and the world that encompasses it.
Kan’s paintings have been showcased throughout Canada with permanent collections in the United States and China.
