“When I first saw butterflies, as a child, I did not know that butterflies were called butterflies. I asked my mother, ‘what are these flying colours?’ Since then, butterflies have always been flying colours in my eyes.”

Jewellery artist and innovator Wallace Chan will showcase ‘In Love with Spring’ for the first time as part of the inaugural TEFAF Online. In line with the fair’s singular “masterpiece” format, Chan presents an exceptional brooch that exemplifies his unique aesthetic, gift for storytelling and technical genius. 

‘In Love with Spring’, created in 2014, conveys Chan’s vision of “flying colours” with meticulous gemstone setting. The gemstones on the butterfly’s wings are angled in an extraordinary way to convey a sense of life and movement. Swirling lines and patterns come together, forming a labyrinth of colours and fantasies that resemble a butterfly’s utopia – woods, trees and flowers. Inspired by Chan’s cultural experiences and personal stories, ‘In Love with Spring’ is another tour de force of the artist’s butterfly journey.

Also taking place this Fall, Wallace Chan will have a two-day exhibition and lecture series in Shanghai from 24-25 October, and a lecture in Hong Kong late November. Further information will be announced.
