Jes Fan Biography

Jes Fan (b. 1990, Scarborough, Canada) lives and works in Hong Kong and Brooklyn, USA. Fan originally trained in glass making, but has expanded his practice to encompass diverse mediums. His trans-disciplinary practice speculates on the intersection of biology and identity in relation to the materiality of the gendered and racialised body.
