According to his website, Chans has also held exhibitions in India and the United Arab Emirates. He previously held an exhibition in Canada in 2014, but he lost 65 original pieces when his luggage was lost on the flight back to India.
Visitors can book an appointment to visit the Chans Art Gallery at Collins Crescent at Chans’ website.
